Slow Horses is a new spy thriller series starring Gary Oldman that premiered on Apple TV+ on Friday — and its theme song is a brand new solo song from Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger.

Titled “Strange Game,” the song was debuted on Friday and boasts some effectively moody touches that seem to pair well with the show, based on a novel from author Mick Herron.

Here’s the song’s video:

As Jagger said in a social media post, he was actually personally familiar with the show’s source material:

I really enjoyed creating the theme track for Slow Horses with @DANIELPEMBERTON
I’ve read a lot of the books and was familiar with some of the more dark and unsavoury characters and knew the direction I wanted to take it…hope you enjoy it!

Said co-writer Daniel Pemberton in a press release about the song:

“Working with Mick Jagger has been one of the most exciting collaborations of my professional career. I think we have managed to create an incredibly unique and original [title] theme.”

And a bit more about Slow Horses from the Apple TV+ website (which you can also visit to find out more about how to watch the show):

This quick-witted spy drama follows a dysfunctional team of MI5 agents — and their obnoxious boss, the notorious Jackson Lamb — as they navigate the espionage world’s smoke and mirrors to defend England from sinister forces.
