From Peaky Blinders premiere: Cillian Murphy and Steven Knight hint at future plans and talk of research for Birmingham-based show by Jack Averty (Native Monster: May 5, 2016)

And, from Cillian Murphy: ‘I gave David Bowie my Peaky Blinders cap’ by Roz Laws (Birmingham Mail: May 5, 2016):

Steven Knight also revealed how Leonard Cohen has written a new track for the show.

Credit Due Department: Thanks to Peaky Binders aficionado Bill H (who admits he’s “not a big Leonard Cohen fan” but knows that I am), who alerted me to this news after seeing an earlier Cohencentric post, “Leonard Cohen is the emperor, king and master of all” Steven Knight (He’s a huge Peaky Blinders fan too).
