You would be hard pressed to find another current drama series featuring as superb music as is played on the soundtrack of the second season of Industry on HBO this month.
Songs like The Velvet Underground’s ‘The Black Angel’s Death Song‘ feat. Nico, which was played on Industry, Season 2, Episode 4, “There Are Some Women…”
The track was played at the end of the episode during the final scenes as Eric climbs into bed with his sleeping daughter, then flashbacks to him, yep, sleeping with Newman’s wife.
The classic track then continues to play over the end credits.
The Velvet Underground and Nico’s ‘The Black Angel’s Death Song‘ was released in 1967 on the band’s debut studio album The Velvet Underground & Nico, which came out on the Verve label.
The album was initially a huge flop, being ignored by both critics and music buyers, and selling fewer than 30,000 copies over the next five years.
Years later, however, The Velvet Underground & Nico went onto become an iconic album for critics.
It also went on to become one of the most influential for future musicians and bands.
It has since been placed on numerous critics’ lists as one of the best albums of modern times, and was eventually certified Platinum in both the UK and Italy.
Listen to The Velvet Underground and Nico’s ‘The Black Angel’s Death Song‘ as played on this week’s Industry on the video, and on the band’s 45th anniversary re-release of their debut album.
