The long-awaited autobiography Face It will share exclusive details about the ups and downs of Debbie Harry’s rise to new wave stardom.

The Blondie icon’s memoir will detail the band’s rise to commercial fame, as well as more personal details about Harry’s relationship with guitarist Chris Stein. There are even details about Harry escaping the clutches of serial killer Ted Bundy.

In addition to a collection of unheard stories, Harry will share previously unseen photographs and an array of fan art throughout the book.

In a statement addressing the memoir, Harry hints that the autobiography might be the first instalment in a series of pieces to share her full story: “There are many more stories for me to tell; some funny, some scary, some warm, some chill to the bone.”

Aside from her iconic journey fronting Blondie and a stellar solo career, the 73-year-old has been a long-time advocate for the LGBTQI+ community and a range of environmental causes.

Harry has recently noted that Blondie is working on an album to follow-up their 2017 release Pollinator.
