The Walking Dead is slowly becoming a force to be reckoned with when it comes to its soundtracks, with a new edition of songs coming as part of the pre-order of the show’s fourth season DVD and Blu-Ray.

One of the tracks off the bonus Songs of Survival, Vol. 2  is “Visions of China,” recorded by folk rockers the Lumineers.
