The 12-track album features contributions from RADIOHEAD guitarist Jonny Greenwood, ELBOW‘s Guy Garvey and Euan Dickinson. UK Gold “follows the dramatic battle of a vicar from a small parish in the London Borough of Hackney as he goes head to head with an ancient and mighty heavyweight, revealing its central status as the tax-haven nerve centre of the world.” Listen to the score and watch the trailer below.
Thom Yorke commented for NME magazine:
“For all the current government’s talk of standards in the Financial Industry it comes as no surprise perhaps that the reality beneath reveals their staggering hypocrisy. Now is the time to reveal the revolving doors between government and the City that has bred lies and corruption for so long, siphoning money through our tax havens for the global super rich, while now preaching that we the people must pay our taxes and suffer austerity. Just who does our government work for?”
