Peaky Blinders soundtrack to get red vinyl release

@TomTaylorFO

Beyond the flat peaked caps and cliff-hangers, if there is one thing that Peaky Blinders is renowned for, it’s the stellar soundtrack that scores the stunning gangster drama. In fact, the ingenious move of having Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds track ‘Red Right Hand’ is about as endearing a handshake that a TV show can offer. 

Now, as the hit BBC One show enters its sixth and final series, the superb songs it has offered along the way are set to be pressed onto a befitting blood-red vinyl LP. Considering that the series may well have provided the greatest collection of tunes on any TV show ever, that is something worth celebrating for fans and mere music lovers alike. 

As show creator Steven Knight said when discussing the instrumental importance of the music used in the show: “The Peaky Blinders story and the music we use are twins, born at the same time. It would be difficult to imagine most of the pivotal moments without the soundtrack.”

He continues to lyrically add: “I’m so glad that at last, we have been able to put some of the tracks together on one album, to put the atmosphere and swagger and snarl of the show into your headphones and speakers.”

Over three oozing LPs, tracks by the likes of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey, Arctic Monkeys and Joy Division are crammed onto the record in a crisp mix alongside exclusive recordings for the show. You can check out the full scintillating tracklisting below. 

The album is set for release on May 27th. For more information and pre-ordering you can click here
