You could argue the best thing in the Mad Men Season 6 trailer is the song in the background. At least it isn’t recycled from Season 5!
According to Entertainment Weekly, the song is Elle King’s “Playing For Keeps.” And since she was born in the ’80s, it's not quite in keeping with the 1960s theme of the show. But it still sounds good.
Here's the chorus:
"It's a lonely road where the forgotten goes
where your misery finds its company
It's a long way down to the sacred ground
where the people play for keeps"
The famously secretive AMC series doesn't share anything new in the promo. It's just a compilation of Season 5 clips on the subject of happiness, or lack thereof. As Don Draper (Jon Hamm) puts it, "What is happiness? It's a moment before you need more happiness." Such a ball of light, that guy!
Mad Men Season 6 premieres Sunday, April 7 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
