Weeks after it was first announced that Tyler, the Creator would be handling the soundtrack for The Grinch remake, his cover of “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” has finally arrived.

Essentially a cover of the original song — which was in the ’96 original movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas! — with a few Tyler-added bars, the track delivers a delicious taste of what we can expect from the soundtrack when the movie premieres on November 9th. Listen below.

Featuring bars such as “You’re as cuddly as a cactus, you’re as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch / You’re a bad banana with a greasy black peel!” Tyler’s lyrics and angry tone lend themselves perfectly to the movie’s madcap vibe, which you can familiarize yourself with via the trailer below.
