Trending Now

Portishead have released a video for their cover of ABBA‘s “SOS” in tribute to Jo Cox, the Batley and Spen MP who was murdered on June 16.

The video features singer Beth Gibbons, shot in monochrome, reaching out towards the camera before ending with a quote from Cox’s maiden speech in parliament: “We have far more in common than which divides us.”

The video was released on what would have been Cox’s 42 birthday.


The track originally appeared in Ben Wheatley’s adaptation of JG Ballard’s novel, High-Rise.
