Steven Knight's brand new drama This Town has unveiled two new tracks by Celeste and Olivia Dean.

The double-premiere launched alongside Self Esteem’s vivid reimagining of "You Can Get It If You Really Want" and Ray Laurél’s new version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", with subsequent episodes including Olivia Dean’s rework of the reggae classic, "The Harder They Come".

The songs played by Fuck The Factory - the band at the heart of This Town - have been created by producer Dan Carey (Fontaines D.C, Wet Leg, and founder of Speedy Wunderground label), who has collaborated with singer-songwriter ESKA and musician, novelist and poet Kae Tempest in work that adds another chapter to this vital story.

Set against the melting-pot scene of the Midlands in the 1980s, Knight’s new drama evokes a community navigating personal upheaval and a pivotal moment of social unrest through the transformative possibilities of music.

On This Town (Music From The Original BBC Series), co-president of Mercury Studios Marc Robinson comments: “it has been a privilege to be working with Paul Whittington, Steven Knight and the entire Kudos team in bringing the musical narrative of This Town to life. Music is at the heart of the series and it has been a thrill to work with such excellent musical talent on this project. Excited to share and celebrate the music that compliments this exceptional series.”

This Town (Music From The Original BBC Series) is out on 26 April via Polydor Records.
