Listen to Sarah Shook & the Disarmers’ ‘Talkin’ to Myself’ – the High Desert theme song

The latest episode of the crazy Apple Original series High Desert is out today, with the usual cool music on its soundtrack.

Songs like Sarah Shook & the Disarmers’ ‘Talkin’ to Myself‘, which is the High Desert opening theme song and on Episode 7, “This Doesn’t Have to Be a Tragedy” played right after Denny runs out of the store he has just robbed.

It is a track that has grown on me so much since it first appeared on Episode 1, I find myself rewinding each episode’s opening minutes just to listen to it again.

Along with being the High Desert opening theme song, Sarah Shook & the Disarmers’ ‘Talkin’ to Myself‘ was also released on the North Carolina-based alternative country band’s third album Nightroamer.

After a delay from its expected release date, that album came out in February, 2022 via Thirty Tigers.

The rocking track has garnered almost half a million plays on Spotify alone, making it one of the most popular songs from the album. Likely due to it being the cool High Desert theme song, and new fans discovering the band.

As for Sarah Shook & the Disarmers, they are a North Carolina-based alternative country, indie rock band that self-released their first album in 2015, and have released two others since then.

Listen to Sarah Shook & the Disarmers’ ‘Talkin’ to Myself‘ – the opening theme for High Desert — in the song’s music video, and on Spotify.

You can learn more about the indie band via their official website, and buy the band’s Nightroamer album featuring ‘Talkin’ to Myself‘ on the usual platforms.

The Apple TV comedy series High Desert stars Patricia Arquette, Matt Dillon, Brad Garrett, Weruche Opia and Bernadette Peters.

The first seven episodes are currently streaming via Apple TV +, and it isn’t just the opening theme song that is stellar as almost every episode has featured several cool tracks.
