Anna Calvi scored the final two seasons of Peaky Blinders, and she’s now announced the release of her soundtracks. Collected together, Peaky Blinders: Season 5 & 6 (Original Score) is out January 26 via Domino Soundtracks. (Each season’s score will get a separate digital release.) Listen to a new song from the fifth season’s score, “Black Tuesday,” below.

“Composing for Peaky Blinders was about atmosphere and space,” Calvi said in a statement. “There’s so much nuance when it comes to scoring to picture. It’s more about what you leave out than what you leave in. I had to let the voice of the actors do the talking but find ways of bringing out the emotion within that. I became completely obsessed with [protagonist] Tommy Shelby, I dreamt about him every night whilst I was working on the scores, I had to really inhabit the show.”

The musician added, “There is a duality to the show, of beauty and brutality, which I had been exploring in my own music. I’m fascinated by the manipulation of emotions with sound, it’s so mysterious. I really tried to explore this with Peaky Blinders, sometimes putting the opposite music than you would expect on a scene had the most impact.”

Calvi composed and performed the music for Peaky Blinders’ fifth season. For the program’s final season, she worked with Nick Launay, who produced 2018’s Hunter.
