Jehnny Beth, frontperson for British four-piece Savages, has shared a new unrelenting solo song, "I'm the Man." It's been done for the soundtrack of the Netflix/BBC show Peaky Blinders. The soundtrack is due out November 15 via Universal and also includes music from David Bowie, Radiohead, The White Stripes, Arctic Monkeys, and more. Previously we posted from the soundtrack PJ Harvey's cover of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' classic "Red Right Hand." The show stars Cillian Murphy and is set in the post-WWI era England. Listen to Beth's song below.

Beth had this to say about the song in a press release: "'I'm The Man' is an attempted study on humankind, what we define as evil and the inner conflict of morality. Because it is much easier to label the people who are clearly tormented by obsessions as monsters than to discern the universal human background which is visible behind them. However, this song has not even a remote connection with a sociological study, collective psychology, or present politics; it is a poetic work first and foremost. Its aim is to make you feel, not think."  

Savages released their last album, Adore Life, back in 2016 via Matador.
