Richard Hawley covers Bob Dylan for finale of Peaky Blinders
The ever-green Richard Hawley has recorded a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Ballad Of A Thin Man’ for the finale of season 5 of Peaky Blinders.
The Pitsmoor born crooner, who is a huge fan of the show, said of the track: “Me, the band, our families – we’re all massive fans of the show, and of course Dylan.
“Dylan is the master, and it’s always a soulful joy to sing his songs. But to sing and play one of his finest works in the context of Peaky Blinders is a proper buzz for us.”
You can listen to the track above, or hear it on the Peaky Blinders season finale on Sunday (22 September).
Earlier in the year, Hawley released Further – his highest charting album to date – and told Exposed: “I’ve still got a fucking pulse and I’ve got no intention to stop it.”
