Portishead are releasing a brand new track - "Chase the tear" for Amnesty International.
The track has received its first airing on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show (7-9pm) on 9 December on the eve of international human rights day, today (10 December). It will be available as an exclusive download single from 7 digital (www.7digital.com/portisheadamnesty) from 10 December, with all earnings going towards Amnesty's human rights work and all rights given to the organisation.
A video of Portishead performing 'Chase the Tear' will also be available from 10 December at: www.amnesty.org.uk/portishead and at portishead.co.uk.
Amnesty International UK's Creative Relationships Manager Chloe Baird-Murray said, "We are thrilled that Portishead have chosen to work with Amnesty and have delivered this great track. Amnesty is already lucky to have the support of some incredible artists in all fields and now Portishead's involvement is launching us into a new area of work with musical artists."
International human rights day (10 December) marks the anniversary of the United Nation's historic "Universal Declaration Of Human Rights" on 10 December 1948. The UDHR set out for the first time in a single document the fundamental rights to which everyone, everywhere is entitled - including the right to life, liberty, security, the freedoms of opinion, association and expression, and the right not to be subjected to torture or cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.
