Portishead's chilling cover of "SOS" by ABBA is here

22 June 2016, 15:37 | Written by Laurence Day

Portishead have finally revealed the official version of their take on ABBA's "SOS, and with it comes a chilling video.

The track has been floating about for a while - it features on the OST for High-Rise, a film adaptation of J.G. Ballard's 1975 novel of the same name starring Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, and Elizabeth Moss - but has only now been given the full video treatment. It's a simple video, but strikingly effective; it ends with a quote from MP Jo Cox, who was killed last week for her political views.

This cover is Portishead's first new music in seven years. It follows 2009's "Chase The Tear".

Check it out below.
