The song that burst Blondie out of the streets of the Bowery to number 1 on the charts, Heart of Glass was the pivotal moment in punk’s choreographed slamdance with the mainstream. Inspired by Kraftwerk and Giorgio Moroder, Blondie transformed their campy Disco Song into a Roland-driven juggernaut and never looked back. Explored and exploded via six distinct versions remastered from the original analog tapes, the history of Heart of Glass is documented here in a copious essay and it’s art reimagined by noted American illustrator Shepard Fairey.
