Yahoo Music is excited to debut the first listen to Earle’s take on the theme, which marks the firstof a series of artists who have put their own spin on it for the forthcoming season.

Additional renditions to come include a diverse bunch: Ty Segall, Bob Mould, Against Me!, Weird Al, John Prine, Camper Van Beethoven, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Matthew Kaminski (the Atlanta Braves organist).

A new version of the theme song will be revealed every week throughout the upcoming season. The premier episode of the show will air at Adult Swim October 15 at midnight.
