Better Call Saul has aired its longest teaser trailer yet in the form of a music video by Junior Brown advertising the crooked lawyer's services.

AMC came to the end of its Breaking Bad marathon last night, and to assuage that feeling of emptiness after a binge viewing served up by far the longest teaser for the spin-off we've seen so far.

The blues rock song is in a similar vein to Johnny Cash's A Boy Named Sue and sees Brown playing slide guitar as he tells stories of Saul's potential clients (who could end up featuring in the show).

"Your husband disappeared in the most convenient way / Now your troubles are gone, the insurance will surely pay / You get to the bank but the cops say 'Whoa!' / Who you gonna dial when they lock you down low?," Brown sings.

US YouTube stream:

Shaky handheld version for non-US residents:

"Saul, Saul, you better call Saul / He'll fight for your rights, when your back's to the wall / He'll stick it to the man, justice for all."

The song is expected to serve as Better Call Saul's opening theme, having been writen by Dave Porter who did Breaking Bad's.

The lyrics meanwhile were written by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, who were creator and a lead writer respectively on Breaking Bad and will be serving as co-showrunners on BCS.

There isn't a huge amount of new footage in the video however, with the producers clearly trying to keep their cards close to their chest with regards to the plot.

This music video might suggest a very comedic tone to the show, but those involved with the show have indicated it will still be more drama than comedy, as with Breaking Bad.

"Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have brought what everyone loved about Breaking Bad to Better Call Saul, all those cliffhanger moments, the tension, it’s all there and I think the fans are going to be super glad to have that back in their life," Bob Odenkirk said recently.

Better Call Saul is expected to arrive on AMC and Netflix in February 2015.
