Anna Calvi scores the new season of Peaky Blinders

Anna Calvi is pleased to announce that she has written and performed the score for the entire new season of BBC One’s Peaky Blinders.

Peaky Blinders had its season 5 premiere in Birmingham yesterday evening, where Anna Calvi joined the cast and director Anthony Byrne on the red carpet.

Previously a fan of the series, Calvi said on writing the original score: “This is a new thing for me but it was a really good fit, I love everything about the show. I completely immersed myself in it and became quite obsessed with the characters, especially Tommy Shelby [played by Cillian Murphy] and getting lost in his mind.”

Anna adds: “There is a duality to the show, a beauty and a brutality, which I have been exploring in my own music and on the Hunter album. I want to say thank you to the director Anthony Byrne for believing in me and letting me seek out what I needed to."

Anna Calvi’s first score for television follows the release of her critically acclaimed third album Hunter. Calvi is a previous Brit Award nominee and has been shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize twice.
