Coachella 2014: Blondie’s Debbie Harry Joins Arcade Fire For “Heart Of Glass”: Watch

“Cruise on, motherfuckers,” Blondie‘s Debbie Harry said at Coachella, while on stage during Arcade Fire‘s headlining set – one of the biggest surprises of the festival’s third day.

Harry joined the Montreal band on stage to duet with vocalist Regine Chassagne for Blondie’s 1978 hit “Heart of Glass,” then provide backup vocals for Arcade Fire’s “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains),” off its 2010 LP The Suburbs. While Chassagne appeared intimidated by Harry at first, and Harry seemed unfamiliar with the lyrics to “Sprawl II,” the two were also clearly stoked to perform together. (“Debbie motherfucking Harry,” frontman Win Butler later said.) It’s a good thing too, because for Arcade Fire fans in particular, the match-up was inevitable.

When The Suburbs initially dropped, critics immediately compared “Sprawl II” to “Heart of Glass” while calling it an album highlight. Chicago duo The Hood Internet then released a mash-up called “Sprawl of Glass,” still years before. On their U.S. dates leading up to Coachella, Arcade Fire would cover “Heart of Glass” live. Watch Blondie and Arcade Fire team up at Coachella up top, then hear the Hood Internet’s mash-up and Arcade Fire’s live cover after the jump.
