The post-apocalyptic carnage begins anew on Sunday with the Season Three premiere of The Walking Dead at 9 p.m. on AMC, and it promises to be an intense ride; as series creator Robert Kirkman recently told Rolling Stone, "We haven't even really gotten to the good stuff from the comic book yet." Before the episode airs, though, you can hear the new song "The Parting Glass" from the characters Beth and Maggie Green, which will factor into the premiere.

The half-sisters Beth and Maggie (played by Emily Kinney and Lauren Cohan, respectively) harmonize in mournful unison on this cover of the Wailin' Jennys Irish folk dirge. Its spectrally beautiful tone suggests heartrending times ahead this season for the band of survivors, and will be available on iTunes after the premiere airs. You can stream it below now.
