Ozzy Osbourne set for Peaky Blinders soundtrack

Ozzy Osbourne will feature on the "Peaky Blinders" soundtrack.

The Black Sabbath legend's iconic brand of hard rock will be heard during the fifth series of the BBC's popular gangster series - which starts on Sunday (25.08.19) - and director Anthony Byrne is shocked it's taken this long for the Prince of Darkness to be included.

He's quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "We are using their tracks "The Wizard" and "War Pigs". We built a library of music that we auditioned against different scenes. "Black Sabbath just felt like a no-brainer. I was going: "Why've they not been used before?" "

"The Wizard" featured on Sabbath's 1970 self titled debut album while "War Pigs" appeared on their follow-up LP "Paranoid", which was released later the same year.

The show is based in Birmingham - Ozzy's hometown - and Tommy Selby actor Cillian Murphy has praised the soundtrack for its identifiable style.

He said: "You just know when a song is "Peaky". The artists are outsiders. They have resisted the tyranny of the mainstream."

Meanwhile, artist Anna Calvi has revealed her own thoughts as she penned a score for the highly anticipated next season of the drama.

She told NME: "I was interested in giving Tommy's unconscious mind a feminine voice. It makes it more frightening somehow."

Steven Knight's hit crime drama series is moving over from BBC Two to BBC One for season five and will follow the 1929 Wall Street Crash.

Tommy Shelby MP is back and will be joined by "charismatic politician" Oswald Mosley played by Sam Claflin.

The official plot synopsis reads: "Series five of Steven Knight's crime family saga finds the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929. Opportunity and misfortune are everywhere.

"When Tommy Shelby MP (Cillian Murphy) is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realises that his response will affect not just his family's future but that of the entire nation."

Steven previously teased his plans for the show to continue for another three series.
