Chris & Cosey to feature on HOPE Not Hate album
19 September 2016

List All News - Back
#MoreInCommon is a compilation album in support of the UK charity HOPE not hate. Since the EU Referendum vote, something nasty has been going on in our country. Eastern and central Europeans are being told that they are no longer welcome here. Ethnic minority Britons have been told to “go home” and Muslims and Jews have been abused on the street.

We may be shocked, but we should not be surprised. The toxic nature of the Referendum debate has unleashed visceral hatred. Egged on by inflammatory language and images during the campaign, it has emboldened the haters lurking within our midst.

But this is not the Britain we know and love. These thugs do not speak for the vast majority of people in the country.

#MoreInCommon is a national campaign to bring our communities back together and with this album a host of diverse artists have kindly donated songs to help raise much needed funds and exposure for the charity. This proves that whatever your background, whatever form your art takes, we can all join together and unite to celebrate our diversity.
