Best Covers: PJ Harvey ‘Red Right Hand’

Music from the first five seasons of BBC crime drama Peaky Blinders will be collected in a new double album due out on November 15th.

Notably, the set marks the first-ever commercial release for PJ Harvey’s cover of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ “Red Right Hand”. The Bad Seeds’ original version has long served as the series’ theme, but in 2014 Harvey was commissioned to cover the song in an effort to make the series seem “less American.”
