English singer Mick Jagger has teamed up with critically-acclaimed composer Daniel Pemberton for a new music project. 

The 78-year-old created the theme song for the new Apple TV Plus spy series, 'Slow Horses', starring Gary Oldman. The track, called 'Strange Game', was released on Thursday. 

The Rolling Stones legend teased his new project a few days earlier. 

"I’ve been working on a fun project with the composer Daniel Pemberton… look out for it coming soon!" he tweeted.

'Strange Game' is Mick's first original TV theme song. He says he loved reading Mick Herron's books and knew exactly what he wanted to write for the song. 

"I really enjoyed creating the theme track for Slow Horses with @DANIELPEMBERTON.  I’ve read a lot of the books and was familiar with some of the more dark and unsavoury characters and knew the direction I wanted to take it…hope you enjoy it!" he wrote. 

The rock ‘n’ roll icon sings in the song: 

Surrounded by losers, misfits and boozers
Hanging by your fingernails
You made one mistake, you got burned at the stake
You’re finished, you’re foolish, you’ve failed

Daniel Pemberton is equally excited to be working with the 'Miss You' hitmaker. 

"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," he wrote in a statement, according to NME.
