The Walking Dead Trailer Song: Take What’s Mine – Future Royalty

If there was one song that could fit Season 9 perfectly, it was surely Future Royalty’s Take What’s Mine. Does the song reference Rick Grimes?

Negan? Or perhaps someone else entirely?

At this point on The Walking Dead characters are either out to help build a better world or out to take everything without a second thought. What better way to convey Ricks’ hard work of bringing everyone together after defeating Negan than with a song with such lyrics as “You don’t know what it’s like to walk a mile in my shoes. You don’t know what it’s like to rule kingdoms that bow to you,” and “Well, better men than you will come and try to take the power.”

Let’s face it Rick himself knows how fragile it all is. All it takes is one person to step out of line and all the work he had been doing would have been for nothing.

If only he knew where all his hard work would leave after his disappearance. Who said being the leader was easy?

The Walking Dead Trailer Song: Serpents – Sharon Van Etten

The Walking Dead Season 4 trailer channeled a major theme regarding “change”. At this point, the group had become accustomed to living in the prison believing it to be safe until one day it’s not.

Who will stay and who will leave? How can they keep everyone safe from outside dangers?

The song flows soothingly in both an eerie and calming tone while scenes jump around from the trials at the prison to large walker herds still roaming the outside world and eventually the radio transmission from Terminus. Following a catchy rhythm like Kari Kimmel’s Black, Serpents by Sharon Van Etten is a song you’ll not be able to get out of your head, especially when going on a long drive or completing everyday tasks.
