Richard Hawley has covered Bob Dylan’s ‘Ballad of a Thin Man’. His version of the track appeared in the finale of the latest series of the hit show ‘Peaky Blinders’…
Earlier this year Hawley released his latest album ‘Further’. It is his highest charting record to date, reaching no. 3 when it was released back in May.
Of the recent cover, Hawley states “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.”
While the ‘Peaky Blinders’ episode has already aired, Richard Hawley & co. are set for a busy autumn thanks to their tour kicking off today (2nd October).
You can see Richard Hawley live in the North East this month at Northumbria Institute on 14th October. Final tickets are available now.
