Listen to a New Bob Dylan Song in a <i>Strike Back</i> Trailer

The first song off of Bob Dylan’s recently announced Tempest has hit the internet, but not in the manner you might expect: “Early Roman Kings” made its debut in a commercial for the Cinemax original series Strike Back.

The romping, bluesy tune provides a surprisingly lighthearted backdrop for a the war-torn trailer. Strike Back’s new season is set to begin on Aug. 17, and according to Rolling Stone, Cinemax will premiere a second track that evening called “Scarlet Town.”

“Early Roman Kings” is the first of Dylan’s songs to surface in television series trailer, although his music has made its first appearance through various movie soundtracks, for films such as North Country, Lucky You and Gods and Generals.

Tempest will be released Sept. 11. Watch the trailer for Strike Back below.
