Nowadays it’s hard for any superhero show to stand out on television. Through three seasons on Netflix, however, The Umbrella Academy has discovered that it sure does help to have a banging soundtrack.

Fittingly for a TV series based on a comic written by a musician (My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way), The Umbrella Academy knows its way around a tune. Season 1 was highlighted by an instant classic group dance session to Tiffany. Then the 1963-set season 2 upped the ante with a whole host of period-appropriate songs. For season 3, Umbrella Academy showrunner Steve Blackman wanted to make sure music played just as big a role.

“I write a lot of songs already into the script. And I encourage my writers to do the same thing,” Blackman tells Den of Geek. “Sometimes they make sense in the scene. Sometimes they’re a little weirdly subversive. And sometimes it’s just literally a fun song for that moment. But as I’ve always said music is a huge part of the show. We love our little soundtrack every year, and it was a delight to do it again this year.”

The Umbrella Academy‘s little soundtracks have proven to be a big hit with viewers, breathing new life into some classics or highlighting little-known tunes. Blackman hopes that season 3 can do the same, starting with the very first song audiences will hear, “Sometimes” by Scottish musician Gerry Cinnamon.

“(Gerry’s) huge in Scotland. I don’t know sure if he has broken yet past the U.K., but he’s amazing and he’s got a great voice. I love that song, “Blackman says. “I knew I was going to use it somewhere in season three. It just became one of those songs that fits so well in the opening. I do think his numbers (on Spotify) are going to go up after we premiere.”
