American singer songwriter Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together‘ was one of the songs played on The Handmaid’s Tale soundtrack this week — The Handmaid’s Tale, Season 5, Episode 5, “Fairytale“. The song was played over last night’s episode’s end credits.

Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together‘ is the title song and lead single from the singer’s fourth studio album.

Released in January, 1972, the song hit #8 on the Billboard 200 chart, and eventually went on to chart in 10 other countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand.

Let’s Stay Together‘ also hit #1 on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart, and was eventually certified Silver in the United Kingdom.
