Blondie presents the official soundtrack to the short film Blondie: Vivir En La Habana which captured the band's 2019 live debut performance in Havana, Cuba. It includes some of Blondie's most iconic hits performed live, including "The Tide is High," "Wipe Off My Sweat," "Heart of Glass", "Rapture and, "Dreaming" plus "Long Time", taken from 2017's Pollinator.
"We had wonderful Cuban musicians join us for the performances – vocalists, percussionists, horn players – they added a terrific level of excitement to our songs. On ‘The Tide Is High', Síntesis vocalists Ele Valdés and Maria del Carmen Avila sang with me and did the original harmonies that John Holt had put on the song, it was incredibly beautiful. Latin music has always been part of the feel of New York, so it was amazing to finally be able to put a very personal touch on the heartbeat of Cuba. VIVA!" notes Debbie Harry.
"This was a great opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of Cuba. It is such a beautiful and friendly country. There is so much appreciation for art, music and nature. The Cuban people have a joy for life, and it was amazing to experience that first hand," added Clem Burke.
