Portishead officially release ABBA cover



Glad to see Portishead finally airing this song publicly. It's from the film High Rise, of course, and the internet was abuzz over it before it was issued with a takedown notice. Now the group has put the song out in tribute to the late M.P. Jo Cox, who was tragically killed last week. There's a quote from Cox, "We have far more in common than which divides us" at the end. ABBA, whose song it is, are something of a symbol of Euro-synergy. As usual, people will speculate about the song as a political statement of intent in the UK referendum; I'd rather see it as a tribute with a positive message. Democracy is good, kids, so happy voting and remember that no one wins or loses.
