Portishead has surfaced with a fresh, haunting cover of a classic ABBA cut.
While the Swedish pop group’s 1975 single isn’t among their happiest tracks, Portishead strips it down and imbued it with a particular darkness. Singer Beth Gibbons seems to be just hanging on as each word spills out. The group last released a song, “Chase the Tear,” in 2009 to benefit Amnesty International.
Hear the cover below.
