Portishead Freely Releases Their Abba SOS Cover From HIGH RISE
That changed yesterday, as those same parties agreed to release the song in memory of British Member of Parliament Jo Cox, who was murdered last week while campaigning. Today, there is a referendum in the United Kingdom about whether they should remain part of the European Union or step out, the so-called "Brexit". Jo Cox was in the "Remain" camp, and she was assaulted, stabbed and finally shot by someone with a history of extreme right-wing and white supremacy views.
Both the video and the music are a very sober and somber take on Abba's song, and this being Portishead, it's right up their alley. As you can now legally see and hear for yourself.
