New song written for Tate Modern show
The Long Blondes are set to debut the new song ’The Unbearable Lightness Of Building’ as part of a special Tate Modern event in London.
The track will be exclusively availably at a listening post in front of the artwork that inspired it – Jannis Kournellis‘ ’Untitled’ from 1979.
The track will also be available from May 1 until the end of November at Tatetracks.org.uk.
The project is part of the 12-week long Tate Tracks which, according to a statement “(Attempts) to match inspirational visual art with inspirational new music”.
The band said: “Untitled (1979) caught our eye because we saw the stark industrial landscape and picture ourselves within it.”
