Former Siouxsie & The Banshees Leader Siouxsie Sioux Thrilled The Producers Of Her Favourite Tv Show When She Agreed To Let Them Use A New Track For The Series Finale.
The last episode of U.S. thriller Hannibal aired on Saturday night (29Aug15) and featured Love Crime, the first new song from the goth guru in eight years.
Series executive producer Bryan Fuller tells Brooklyn Vegan, "(Composer) Brian Reitzell knew I am a huge Siouxsie Sioux fan and have seen her in concert more times than any other artist in my life. We knew that she was a fan of the show, and we reached out to see if she'd be interested in writing a song. Essentially, she hasn't had a single in eight years, and she said she hadn't been inspired to write in a long time, but that Hannibal had inspired her and she would write a new song.
"It was an incredible honour... She came back with this wonderful Bond theme of a ditty, and I just said that has to go over the finale. It was pitch-perfect."

However, Sioux had a "couple of close shaves" including a nasty fall at the beginning of the year (14) which she compares to Christopher Reeve's life-changing riding accident in 1995 which left the Superman actor paralysed from the neck down.
