Lil Nas X will definitely be telling Blondie to "Call Me" about cutting another "Old Town Road" remix now that the New Wave legends are covering his viral hit on their latest tour. Paste notes that the band's cover offers "a more refined, stripped-back version of the original [while] cutting its already-concise length in half." Meanwhile, Rolling Stone raves about frontwoman Debbie Harry's "sultry, syrupy vocals dragging out the chorus to create a haunted western vibe." The outlet also notes that Blondie has added the cover to their setlist since their co-headlining tour with Elvis Costello and the Impostors launched last week.
