Portishead have today announced that they'll be contributing a song to the soundtrack of High-Rise, a film adaptation of J.G. Ballard's 1975 novel of the same name, directed by Ben Wheatley and starring Tom Hiddleston (pictured above in a recent still from the film), Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller and Elisabeth Moss. That contribution arrives in the form of a cover of ABBA's 'SOS' – whilst we don't to hear it yet, the mere thought of a Portishead-ised version of such a jaunty number is enough right now.

Related to Portishead, but not at all to High-Rise, Geoff Barrow's other band, Beak>, have created the soundtrack for Couple In A Hole, a film about a couple who literally decide to go live under a rock; watch the trailer for that below.
