Long Time is the third offering from this remarkable new album, once again perfectly demonstrating the record’s blend of Blondie’s pioneering past with new influences from modern music’s great innovators. The track also reignites a winning formula of Debbie Harry and collaborator Dev Hynes (AKA Blood Orange).
Set in the city where Blondie’s story began over four decades ago, the video for Long Time sees the band in a chaotic, loud, and fast-paced New York.
The video flips between scenes of front woman Debbie Harry driving recklessly in a signature yellow cab and the band playing on the streets of New York. This is a video that seamlessly reflects the raw energy of both the band and their city.
The video for Long Time was shot and directed by Dikayl Rimmasch. New York based Dikayl also worked with Beyonce on her Lemonade album videos in 2016.
His relationship with Blondie began earlier this year, when he directed the video for Pollinator’s debut single Fun. Dikayl’s pure talent and creativity are ever apparent in this latest collaboration with Blondie, a band who tapped into New York’s creative music and art scene along with bands like Talking Heads and Television
Like its two Pollinator predecessors Fun and My Monster, third single Long Time showcases an album made with an enviable series of collaborators, elegantly moulding their love of Blondie with their own sound.
Available to preorder now on CD, Cassette, Heavyweight vinyl, Ltd 7″ box set. Pollinator is also available as a heavyweight white vinyl via selected indie stores and heavy weight red vinyl via the artist store: https://blondie.lnk.to/PollinatorPR
