Despite only just seeing an American release, the new release from New York veterans Blondie came out in the UK at the end of May.

Panic Of Girls is the band’s first since 2003’s The Curse Of Blondie and interestingly sees a cover of Beirut‘s “Sunday Smile”.

Last.fm Trends looks at how the album has been doing amongst Blondie’s vast back catalog.

Blondie formed in 1975 and were one of the most influential bands to come out of the New York new wave scene. They released six albums in their first seven years as a band, however a long hiatus led to just three albums between 1992 and the present day.

Panic Of Girls has been scrobbled 110,258 times and caused a slight spike when it was released at the end of May.

The unleashing of the album in America is sure to generate a huge increase in scrobbles of Blondie, however it will do well to reach the heights of 1972’s Parallel Lines – scrobbled 1,444,309 times.

Lead single “Mother” has been scrobbled 20,765 times – impressive given its short life span thus far, whilst the aforementioned cover of Beirut’s “Sunday Smile” has been scrobbled 7,780 times.
