Blondie's 'Heart of glass' was released in January 1979. Almost immediately after its release, it became the subject of controversy because of its disco sound. At the time, Blondie was one of the bands at the forefront of New York's growing New Wave music scene and were accused of "selling out" for releasing a disco song. The band itself has jokingly taken to referring to the song as "The Disco Song" in interviews.
This 12" single features an instrumental version of the song as well as an extended remix. The song 'Rifle range' was originally released in 1976 on Blondie's debut album.
