Blondie released their music video for “Long Time,” on Wednesday morning. The song, co-written by Dev Hynes (Blood Orange), is the third single from the band’s upcoming 11th studio album titled Pollinator, due out May 5.
In the video, which can be seen below, the band’s iconic singer Debbie Harry gets behind the wheel of a New York City cab and takes the viewer into the dark world of their famous hometown. With all the members sporting leather and dark sunglasses to go with the song’s uptempo and modern feel, you’d think it was the early 1980s all over.
The 3-minute and 15-second video was shot and directed by Dikayl Rimmasch, who music fans will recognize from his work on Beyonce’s Lemonade videos, as well as on her Formation World Tour.
“Set in the city where Blondie's story began over four decades ago, the video for ‘Long Time’ sees the band in a chaotic, fast-paced New York City,” it said about the new clip in a press release.
Prior to the album’s Cinco De Mayo release, the band will also release 750 7" copies of "Long Time" as a Record Store Day exclusive sold only in the U.S.
