North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who recently succeeded his deceased father Kim Jong-il as the head of the country, has a new theme song entitled "Onwards Toward the Final Victory."

According to state news agency KCNA, "The song hardens the will of the Korean army and people to devote their all to the prosperity of the country with high national pride." The Guardian reports that the tune is being aired repeatedly on TV and radio, and the score is available in the country's official newspaper.
