Mogwai release a new soundtrack album, ‘ZeroZeroZero’, which is available for one week exclusively on a pay-what-you-can basis with half of proceeds going to Help Musicians and NHS charities.
The 21 track long-player is from the series of the same name from the producers of Gomorrah the Series – starring Gabriel Byrne, Andrea Riseborough, and Dane DeHaan – which will soon be available in the UK and Ireland on Sky.
The band – Stuart Braithwaite, Barry Burns, Dominic Aitchison, and Martin Bulloch – are currently in isolation, working remotely with producer Tony Doogan in mixing the record.
Of the album, Braithwaite said: “Most of our 2019 was spent scoring ‘ZeroZeroZero’ and we’re really happy for people to hear the soundtrack album. It was a great project to be involved with and we’re really pleased with how both the show and the music turned out.
“With this release we’re hoping to raise money for Help Musicians and NHS charities via the release on Bandcamp. We know that a lot of people working in music have seen earnings disappear and that those working for the NHS are experiencing horrendous pressures dealing with the Covid 19 pandemic.
“By donating half of what we make in the first week, we hope to do something to help those in need. We’re also aware that everyone has been affected financially and because of that we have made the record available on a pay-what-you-can basis.”
