Suicide Squad is getting annihilated in the press and seems to be the latest in a long line of superhero blockbusters that don’t need to exist. I won’t be seeing it on Friday (August 5), but I for one am glad it exists because it provided us with a new Grimes song.

“Medieval Warfare” is her first new material since dropping the 2015 highlight Art Angels, and it continues that album’s MO of combining wispy vocals with harsher chants and dance beats with processed butt rock guitars.

It’s off the movie’s feature-packed soundtrack, which is also out Friday. Zane Lowe just premiered the song along with a short interview with Grimes about it. Listen below.
