Every Song From the Peaky Blinders Season 6 Soundtrack

61 total views

The word circulating set during the filming of Peaky Blinders Season 6 was “gothic”—big emotions, big themes, big everything. Another word was “dark.” Which is how star Cillian Murphy also described the season. More specifically: “dark as fuck.” Season 6 would be big and dark as fuck.

That tone would require an appropriate soundtrack. While previous seasons leaned mostly on hard rock hits, there has always been a touch of gothic, too—Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ “Red Right Hand,” the show’s theme song, introduced each episode with a shot of gothic rock. This season, however, makes that gothic root more apparent. Interestingly, “Red right Hand” is absent from the show’s opening; instead, we hear softer covers of the song, in keeping with the season’s more somber tone. The story of Tommy Shelby is slowing, coming to an end.

To help with this season’s melancholia, Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead contributed original music. (If you’re looking for that one song in Episode 6 when Tommy and Arthur embrace, it’s called “Teleharmonic Phaser” by Yorke and Greenwood’s band The Smile; the song is currently unreleased.) Meanwhile, Anna Calvi teamed up with Bad Seeds producer Nick Launay for the season’s score.

Show creator Steven Knight told NME why he’s consistently chosen contemporary music for the series, which in its sixth season takes place in 1934.

“It’s still the dreamscape that allows certain emotions to happen, while at other times it’s contrasting with what’s going on. It’s the bridge between a period drama and a modern audience. It gives you that emotion that you recognize. The people who were living then have the same emotions that we do now, but just in different clothes.”

And great clothes at that.

Here’s every song featured in the Peaky Blinders Season 6 soundtrack.
