Debbie Harry & Joan Jett are two news anchor in Blondie’s video “Doom or destiny”

Rock icons Blondie have unveiled a music video for their collaboration with Joan Jett.
The track, called “Doom or destiny” is the fourth single taken from the band’s recent, critically acclaimed new album “Pollinator”, which came out in May.
Directed by longtime Blondie collaborator Rob Roth, the clip is inspired by the current political landscape and social turmoil across the globe.
It sees Debbie and Joan taking over a news broadcast, loaded with reports of thermonuclear war, feminist statements and fake news.
About it, Harry said: “We wanted to comment on the bizarre state of media and news in the current political ‘idiocracy’ we are watching play out in real time and create our own news channel that dealt with current issues such as the environmental collapse, fossil fuels, bee population decline, global warming, sexism, patriarchy, Trump and Russia, feminism, consumerism, the marketing of war and more”.
“Politics have become the new pop culture phenomena” added Blondie guitarist Chris Stein, “but it seems the current landscape of music videos has so little to do with true protest or some kind of social message. It can be truthful, but irreverent, fun and funny. The punk style protest is somewhat removed from today’s modern music”.

Lyrics:

Clear as a bell and an echoing shell
Clear as a pane of glass
I realize, I can’t revise
As clear as a big blue sky
Through and through it all
You’re trying to stall
It’s clear as a crystal ball
As the facets are bold in platinum and gold
Clear as a flawless diamond

I’m hitting the wall
I know I’m gonna fall for you
Is it my fate or fatal attraction?
Could it be a fait accompli?

Oh, is it doom or destiny?
Oh, is it doom or destiny?

Dark as a winter’s moonless night
Dark as a velvet cape
I realize, I can’t revise
It’s dark as the other side
I can recommend but I can’t defend
It’s dark as a deep sea trench
I was stuck in a target, having a shit fit
Dark as an angry inch

Oh, I can’t wait
You’re an out-of-state plate, oh
It’s creepy fate or fatal attraction
Could it be a fait accompli?

Oh, is it doom or destiny?
Oh, is it doom or destiny?

Oh, is it doom or destiny?
Oh, is it doom or destiny?
Oh, is it doom or destiny?
Oh, is it doom or destiny?
Oh, is it doom or destiny?
Oh, is it doom or destiny?
Oh
