Blondie are set to release a box set collection — spanning their first six studio albums — called Blondie: Against The Odds 1974-1982 on August 26 that includes a bunch of rarities from the NYC new wave icons. 

They've already shared a cover of the Doors' "Moonlight Drive" and a previously unheard demo called "I Love You Honey, Give Me A Beer," and today sees them drop another rare gem with "Mr. Sightseer." 

Recorded in 1978 in Chris Stein and Debbie Harry's bedroom using a TEAC TCA-43 four-track reel-to-reel, "Mr. Sightseer" is a twinkling little ditty that was remastered by engineer Michael Graves for inclusion on Against the Odds.

"The lyric is not good at all," Harry said in a statement about the track. "The song's not too bad. It's just a little simplistic. It didn't ever get really developed or finished."
