Earlier today, the Mountain Goats premiered a new track on popular spooky podcast Welcome To Night Vale. The song’s called “Heel Turn 2,” and comes from John Darnielle’s upcoming wrestling-inspired album, Beat The Champ. The 6-minute track serves as the quasi-centerpiece to the new record, and features a characteristically melancholy chorus in the form of “I don’t wanna die in here.” You can listen to it around the 20:00 mark in the podcast’s most recent episode or below. You can also buy the track on iTunes.
