Iggy Pop and Jarvis Cocker have teamed up to cover Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds track “Red Right Hand.” The song off 1994’s Let Love In is known to many as the opening theme music to the BBC-via-Netflix crime drama series Peaky Blinders, starring Cillian Murphy.
Cocker and Pop’s rowdy, rocking rendition of the track was featured in this week’s episode of Peaky Blinders, which aired in the U.K. Wednesday night via the BBC. The cover is now streaming via Rough Trade Records on all digital streaming platforms.
Cocker-Pop, as we’ll be calling their two-man supergroup from here on out, join a small but impressive group of musicians who have covered the Cave track-as-Peaky Blinders theme. PJ Harvey and Arctic Monkeys previously offered their own must-hear interpretations.
