Portishead’s first new track in six years is a cover of ABBA’s “SOS”

Listen to Portishead‘s amazing cover of ABBA’s “SOS”. The trio dedicated the song to murdered MP Jo Cox and the video which features a forlorn looking Beth Gibbons ends with a quote from Jo Cox: “We have far more in common than which divides us.”  The moving rework features on the soundtrack for the film adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s High-Rise directed by Ben Wheatley. Watch the video above.
