Blondie have announced plans to release the official soundtrack to Blondie: Vivir En La Habana, their short film capturing a live performance in Havana.
The film, created by artist and director Rob Roth, documents the band achieving their lifelong dream of performing in the Cuban capital.
The 6-song soundtrack (on limited edition blue vinyl) will feature “The Tide is High,” “Wipe Off My Sweat,” “Heart of Glass,” “Rapture,” “Dreaming” and “Long Time.”
Several songs include amazing collaborations with some very gifted Cuban musicians.
The film showcases highlights from the two-night live musical performances as well as unique, intimate behind-the-scenes moments captured throughout their time in Havana.
“We had wonderful Cuban musicians join us for the performances – vocalists, percussionists, horn players – they added a terrific level of excitement to our songs,” said Debbie Harry. “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!” the Blondie lead vocalist added.
Blondie: Vivir en la Habana is set to premiere at England’s Sheffield Doc Fest in June, while the soundtrack will drop on July 16.
