Anna Calvi announces new EP 'Tommy'

Fresh off the back of her work scoring the final season of Peaky Blinders, Anna Calvi has now announced her plans for a new EP, arriving next month.

The new four-track collection 'Tommy' will include a cover of 'Red Right Hand', the Peaky Blinders theme song by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds; a cover of Bob Dylan’s 'All The Tired Horses', and two original songs written specifically for the show, 'Ain’t No Grave' and 'Burning Down'.

Speaking about the new EP, she said, “I’ve been living in the character of Tommy Shelby for years now, after scoring series 5 and this final series of Peaky Blinders. The only way to write for this show is to get inside his head - I’ve dreamed about him every night for months, and when I pick up my guitar I try to play to his inner thoughts. My guitar is his violence and my voice is his hope. I always felt he should have ‘a song’ that sums him up - he’s the ultimate antihero - murderous, cold, terrifying, and yet has a deep love for his family and a naive childlike hope that he will one day rise above it all. I wanted to believe that ‘Aint No Grave’ was the song going round in his head as he slow motion walks through his life. I think Tommy will be a part of me forever!”

Anna Calvi's new EP 'Tommy' will arrive on the 6th May via Domino Recordings, and you can check out the new lead single 'Ain't No Grave' in the player below.
