No Exit is the seventh studio album by the US rock group Blondie. Released in February 1999, it marked the first time the band had recorded or performed together since 1982's The Hunter.
The album reached no.3 in the UK charts, where it was certified Gold for sales in excess of 100,000 copies. It was preceded by the hit single, "Maria", which became Blondie's sixth UK number one, exactly twenty years after the band's first number one, "Heart of Glass". As was customary for a Blondie album, it dabbled in many genres, including pop, reggae, and hip-hop. Mike Chapman, who had produced all but the first two of Blondie's albums, produced some of the early demos for the album but final production of the album fell to Craig Leon.
A version of The Shangri-Las' 1965 hit "Out in the Streets" was also included on this album. It was originally recorded by the band in 1975 while they were trying to get a record deal. The demo version was first issued on EMI's 1994 anthology The Platinum Collection and was later included on the 2001 remaster of the album Blondie.
Chris Stein said on an interview with Tim Banks (March 1, 2004): "With our last record, No Exit, the title was taken from a Sartreplay, which says there's no madness in individuals, it's all in groups. I think that's probably what all these reality TV shows are about. Maybe we were a reality TV show before there was reality TV."
