Blondie has unveiled a new video for “Fun,” the first track from their 11th studio album Pollinator. The video for the frenetic track, which premiered via EW.com, opens with a space traveler hurtling through the galaxy amidst trippy, kaleidoscopic animation. After landing on Mars, a celestial rave led by Blondie ensues where everyone is welcomed, accepted and celebrated. Directed by Dikayl Rimmasch (Beyonce’s “Lemonade,” Formation World Tour), the “Fun” video serves as an escape from the current tension and division gripping the U.S. and beyond and features imagery representing Blondie’s experience of New York City’s ’70s music and club culture inspired by the acclaimed photography of Blondie songwriter/guitarist Chris Stein.
“The band was really welcoming and open,” says Rimmasch. “Debbie is beautiful and beautifully enigmatic. It was amazing to be on the other side of the glass from her when those ‘Debbie moments’ happened it felt like I had stepped into a parallel dimension.”
Pre-order Pollinator here available in CD, digital and heavy weight vinyl formats as well as a limited edition 7″ box set. World-renowned artist Shepard Fairey designed the album artwork. Fans can also pre-order a limited red heavy weight vinyl album from Blondie’s store.
