Blondie have released "Mr. Sightseer" off their upcoming box set Blondie: Against The Odds 1974-1982 (Preorder). The recording was unearthed specifically for the box set, having never made it past a bedroom demo; now it's been newly remastered and serves as a B-side to Blondie's cover of The Doors' "Moonlight Drive."

"Mr. Sightseer" is an exciting look into the box set, which features 124 tracks and 36 previously unissued recordings (plus tons of liner notes, commentary, and illustrations). Debbie Harry and Chris Stein recorded the song on a four track reel-to-reel in 1978, and in retrospect, Debbie jokes, "The lyric is not good at all. The song's not too bad. It's just a little simplistic. It didn't ever get really developed or finished." Listen to "Mr Sightseer" below.

Blondie: Against The Odds 1974-1982 comes out August 26 via UMe and The Numero Group. Pre-order the box set in the BV shop.

Blondie have also kicked off the final leg of their Against The Odds tour with The Damned, with dates upcoming across the Northeast and Midwest. The tour hits NYC next week on August 17 & 18 at The Rooftop at Pier 17. All dates below.
