If you're a Radiohead fan, brace yourself for the greatest Christmas present ever.

The band released the "Spectre" theme song on SoundCloud Friday morning. Lead singer Thom Yorke announced on Twitter that Radiohead did "write a tune" for the latest film in the James Bond series, but it didn't end up working out.

It is Radiohead's first new song since "Spooks," recorded before "In Rainbows", which appeared on the Inherent Vice soundtrack in 2014, according to Rolling Stone.

May the force be with you too, Radiohead.
