Chase The Tear


In December of 2009, Portishead released a single (and a video) to raise money for Amnesty International. The recording(s) were released on International Human Rights Day to mark the anniversary of the United Nations' historic "Universal Declaration of Human Rights". The video is beautifully shot and the music, the first offering from this somewhat reclusive band in several years, is really nice. I especially like Beth Gibbons doing the vocals sitting in a chair.

Winter sigh, summer's gone
Holding off tomorrow's sorrow

[NOTE: The "tear" referenced is that produced by ripping, not crying].
