PJ Harvey has covered Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ classic “Red Right Hand.” It’s been done for the soundtrack of the Netflix/BBC show Peaky Blinders, which features the song and has had various others cover it, including Jarvis Cocker and Iggy Pop. The soundtrack is due out November 15 via Universal and also includes music from David Bowie, Radiohead, The White Stripes, Arctic Monkeys, and more. The show stars Cillian Murphy and is set in the post-WWI era England. Listen to Harvey’s cover below.

Harvey and Nick Cave have a complicated history, in that they used to date. Cave recently wrote about why their relationship ended on his Red Hand Files website where he answers fan questions and you can read that here.

Harvey has recently done the soundtrack for the London stage production of All About Eve, which stars Gillian Anderson and Lily James. She recently released an EP featuring her original demos for the soundtrack’s “The Sandman” and “The Moth.” On the main soundtrack those songs are sung by the play’s stars Anderson and James, but these demos feature Harvey’s vocals instead.

PJ Harvey released her last album, The Hope Six Demolition Project, in 2016 via Vagrant. Feel free to read our review of The Hope Six Demolition Project.
