Father John Misty and electronic producer Haxan Cloak have teamed up for a cover of Link Wray’s 1971 track “Fallin’ Rain.” The song appears in a new teaser for Stephen King and J.J. Abrams’ Hulu series Castle Rock. The show combines characters and settings from King’s previous work to create a unique storyline within the same multiverse. It stars actors who have appeared in other King films such as Bill Skarsgard who played Pennywise from the IT remake and Sissy Spacek who broke through in the role of Carrie in Carrie.
