American alternative rockers The Dandy Warhols have dropped a new collaborative track with Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry a month out from their completely sold-out Australian tour.

I Will Never Stop Loving You finds The Dandy Warhols singer Courtney Taylor-Taylor trading ominous, leading lines with Harry’s light, airy tone.

Instrumentally, the track recalls the near-menacing vibe of Leonard Cohen’s You Want It Darker and shows that the band enjoy being experimental. You can watch the lyric video below.

I Will Never Stop Loving You “is the only true ‘love song’ I have ever written,” Taylor-Taylor revealed in a press release. “Dark as it may be, I truly believe it represents love and what that word means to many people.”

On working with Debbie Harry, he added, “Debbie’s voice elevated this song to a level that nothing else could possibly have done. Upon hearing it, I think I learned more about singers in that moment than I have learned in the last 15 years… I don’t know… Maybe ever.”

The single is the fourth from The Dandy Warhols’ new album, ROCKMAKER, released yesterday (15 March), and follows a string of collaborations with the likes of PixiesFrank Black (on Danzig With Myself) and Slash (I’d Like To Help You With Your Problem). You can listen to/buy the album here.

The Dandy Warhols’ longtime love affair with Australia continues this April and May, with a sold-out tour on the way. The tour was met with such demand that additional shows were announced for Melbourne and Adelaide.

The Dandy Warhols last toured Australia alongside Hoodoo Gurus in September 2022, but their last headline slot down under was in November 2019.

Meanwhile, Debbie Harry will be back in Australia with Blondie next month to co-headline the inaugural Pandemonium Festival and play a sideshow.
