Stranger Things star Joe Keery has gone and released his debut single Roddy, and it’s everything you’d expect it to be.

Yes, just like the Netflix series’ theme tune, the new hit is packed full of psychedelic synths and otherworldly riffs that transport you straight back to the 80s.

And if that’s not enough to get you excited, then Joe, who plays Steve Harrington in the show, sings on the track – and he’s not half bad.

Taking to Instagram, the actor come singer made the announcement as he told his 6.6million followers: ‘Awwww yeah buddy.’

Under the caption he dropped a snippet from the track, which played over a picture of the star channeling everything John Lennon.

Yes, the specs, the haircut, even the tash – he’s gone full Beatles and we like it.

Fans were quick to comment and teased the star that the hit would be something you’d hear when entering Area 51.

But they’re really not wrong.

‘What you hear while entering the gates of area 51,’ one quipped while another added: ‘Music didn’t exist until you dropped this.’

Someone else was as equally impressed: ‘I could listen to this song a billion times,’ and that was just from the snippet.

Joe later dropped the full version onto YouTube, and it’s a tune.

This isn’t the first time the 27-year-old has dabbled in music, as he used to be a member of the Chicago psych band Post Animal.

The group released a full album back in 2018, titled When I Think Of You In A Castle, where the superstar showed off his talents by singing on the backing vocals for both Ralphie and Dirtpicker.

Keery who stars in Stranger Things recently spoke to Metro news about the third series, and joked about his character progression.

‘I presumed I’d get eaten and was really happy not to be,’ he told the publication acknowledging the fact Steve wasn’t all too popular when the series started.

He added: ‘One of the reasons this show is successful, I think, is that it takes these characters you think you know, these John Hughes 1980s tropes, and gives them a new angle.’
