It will be available exclusively for one week via Bandcamp as a pay-what-you-can download

Mogwai are releasing their soundtrack for drama series ZeroZeroZero.

The soundtrack to the show's first series will be made available digitally from tomorrow (May 1) via Bandcamp as a pay-what-you-can download for one week. Half of proceeds from the sales via Bandcamp in that week will go to Help Musicians and NHS charities. The release will then be made available via all other digital retailers on May 8.

"Most of our 2019 was spent scoring ZeroZeroZero and we're really happy for people to hear the soundtrack album," Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite says. "It was a great project to be involved with and we're really pleased with how both the show and the music turned out.

"Like everyone else, we are isolating at home so the mixing of the record was all done remotely with Tony Doogan. 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 (PWYC) basis."

You can purchase Mogwai's ZeroZeroZero soundtrack via their Bandcamp page when it's released tomorrow. Bandcamp will also be waiving its share of sales made via the platform tomorrow (May 1) for 24 hours starting from 9am BST.
