From the Manufacturer

Launched in 2010, Luther has fast become one of the BBC's most popular crime series with Idris Elba in the title role as a dedicated but obsessive police officer. With its mysterious theme, Paradise Circus by Massive Attack opening each episode the series also utilises a play-out track that fits the atmosphere of the story.

This release features many of these outstanding songs including music from Robert Plant, Suede, Marilyn Manson, and Nina Simone. Composer Paul Englishby provides the score for the series with music that can range from darkly menacing soundscapes to elegiac dreaminess.

As a special bonus, the little-known Kasabian track 'Black Whistler' (previously only available on the single for Empire) makes its album debut here. Always a favourite with the show's star and producers, it was considered for the opening theme song but they never managed to find a home for it throughout the three series. It is included here at Idris Elba's request.
