The singer explained that Blondie were intent on mixing various musical styles on Panic of Girls, the band's first studio album in eight years.
"Since we haven't had an album out in a long time - seven or eight years - we wanted to make a really strong Blondie album," Harry told Parade. "Our legacy has always been a blend of a lot of different styles of music, so we incorporated some reggae, pop, world music and rock."
Harry admitted that she never expected Blondie would still be touring and recording more than 30 years after they first formed in New York City.
"It's sort of been a gradual progression. I only stopped for a few years in the mid '80s. I did some solo work for a while and then we put Blondie back together in the mid '90s and we've been touring ever since. We're on a roll," she commented.
Harry previously declared that she tries to keep up with current music trends and is a fan of rappers Jay-Z and Ludacris.
