Asian Dub Foundation is n°1 in the UK charts, in the days of Brexit, with an anti-racist song!

Realised also on 12″ vynil, the single with various remixes is a available on all the digital platforms https://smarturl.it/CominOverHere-Remixs
The money raised from Comin’ Over Here will be donated to the Kent Refugee Action Network (KRAN), a charity that supports young refugees striving to live independent and successful lives in the community.
This incredible achievement led Asian Dub Foundation’s Steve “Chandra” Savale to exclaim:
“This is an amazing result for a leftfield track that satirises casual anti- immigrant rhetoric. It’s struck a real chord with people because it’s both a tough tune and funny which is a rare combination. We’re happy that this unexpected pairing of one of Britain’s most brilliant comedians and most consistently radical band has raised a defiant smile in very challenging times and it shows that there’s still a lot of people out there that believe the UK should remain an open, progressive and welcoming place. It’s also incredible to think that in terms of actual sales, ie people deciding to buy the trackrather than simply engaging a Spotify playlist, we were ahead of Ed Sheeran, Wham and Dua Lipa!”
Comin’ Over Here is taken from Asian Dub Foundation’s new album Access Denied which is out now. Access Denied released by X-Ray Production, with collaborations featuring Stewart Lee, incendiary Palestinian shamstep warriors 47 Soul and climate activist supreme Greta Thunberg.
