Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry will tell the story of her career as a musician and actress in a new memoir set for release this fall. The memoir — titled “Face It” — is described as “a multilayered memoir from a multifaceted artist.”
Harry’s career in music began with her stint as a backup singer in a folk band, but she first became a star as the frontwoman for Blondie, a new wave/punk band that she co-founded with guitarist Stein in 1974. The band released its first No. 1 single, “Heart of Glass,” in 1979. They followed that up with a string of hit songs, including “One Way or Another,” “Call Me,” “The Tide Is High” and “Rapture,” which was the first pop song including rap to reach No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Blondie broke up in 1982 but reunited 15 years later. Harry has also worked as an actress, appearing in films such as “Videodrome,” “Hairspray” and “Cop Land.”
“Face It” is scheduled for release on Oct. 1.
