A new track from Jehnny Beth has been released as part of the Peaky Blinders soundtrack.
I’m The Man is an ‘attempted study on humankind’, according to Beth, ‘what we define as evil and the inner conflict of morality’. “Because it is much easier to label the people who are clearly tormented by obsessions as monsters than to discern the universal human background which is visible behind them,” she continues.
“However, this song has not even a remote connection with a sociological study, collective psychology, or present politics; It is a poetic work first and foremost. Its aim is to make you feel, not think.”
I’m The Man is one of three previously unreleased songs on the soundtrack, picked for inclusion by Peaky Blinders’ director/writer Anthony Byrne. It featured on the fourth episode of the show’s current season.
