AMC’s been stringing fans along with frustratingly short teasers for new show Better Call Saul, but on Sunday night, the channel’s two-month-long Breaking Bad marathon ended most appropriately: with what might be Better Call Saul‘s theme song.

Country musician Junior Brown provides the bouncy tune, which is reminiscent of Johnny Cash’s “A Boy Named Sue” in terms of melody. Brown’s the focus here, though there are a few courtroom clips to whet our appetite. This is a great opportunity to get familiar with Brown and his back catalog. Start with “My Wife Thinks You’re Dead.” (It’s also a great opportunity to revisit C.S. Lewis Jr., Bob Odenkirk’s country singer character from the Mr. Show “America Blows Up the Moon” sketch.)

The show premieres in February, but we’re guessing we’ll get a few more carrots to chomp at before then.
