English artist has released a cover of the 1994’ Red Right Hand by Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds that she recorded for the BBC TV series Peaky Blinders, focusing on gangsters in the aftermath of the I World War. Flood, music producer of the TV series said that PJ Harvey was called after complaints were received stating that the series was coming across too American: “We’re trying to make it feel much more European and British and PJ fits that bill perfectly,” he told NME. “I phoned Polly up and she was very interested. We’re trying to deconstruct all of Polly’s material and then weave it through, it’s very cutting-edge and modern.”
Nick Cave’s version of Red Right Hand is the main opening theme of the TV series.
