Hear the Shins Sing the Beatles’ ‘The Word’ for Netflix’s Animated Show Beat Bugs

As if the animated critters on Netflix’s new show Beat Bugs couldn’t possibly be any cuter, the show is about five best bug-buds who explore their backyard with the assistance of more than 50 (you heard us right, 50) covers of Beatles songs. Plenty of famous musicians will be showing off their classic-rock-covering chops for the show, including Eddie Vedder, Sia, Chris Cornell, Pink, Of Monsters and Men, and Regina Spektor, and we’re pleased to exclusively premiere a video of indie-rock darlings the Shins performing their cover of the Rubber Soul classic “The Word.” Take a break from listening to “New Slang” and check it out. (And if you’re so inclined, check out the show’s trailer below, too.)
