In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Jagger explained, “Out of the blue, I got an email from a guy I didn’t know, [composer] Daniel Pemberton.” He continued, “I’d heard of him, because he’d done quite a lot of TV and film music, English guy, and he’d gotten a lot of kudos [and] nominations for awards. He said, ‘Would you be interested in doing this TV theme?’ I’m always up for doing something different.”

Pemberton, who produced “Strange Game,” said in a statement: “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 titles theme and I cannot wait for the rest of the world to hear it.”

Slow Horses director James Hawes added: “We always wanted a song to set the tone for the show and there was only ever one name in my mind—Mick Jagger. Hearing the track for the first time was utterly thrilling. Mick’s lyrics and performance have totally nailed the mood of Slow Horses, with all the humor and swagger I dreamed of.”
