Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood are helping Peaky Blinders say its farewell with some new music.

As director Anthony Byrne tells NME, the Radiohead duo has “contributed some original stuff” to the upcoming sixth and final season of the beloved British TV crime drama.

“I’m over the moon about all of that,” Byrne says. “The music has always been really important historically, and I was really keen to bring a dramatic score into it.”

Peaky Blinders viewers have previously heard the Radiohead tracks “You and Whose Army?” and “Pyramid Song” on the show. Its soundtrack also includes songs by The White Stripes and Jack White, Dan Auerbach, Royal Blood, PJ Harvey, Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Foals, Black Sabbath and Joy Division.

The last season of Peaky Blinders premieres February 27 on BBC One. In the U.S., you can watch the first five seasons on Netflix.

Yorke and Greenwood, meanwhile, have been releasing new music this year with their side project, The Smile.
