    Song in "What It Always Is" Was Written by Emily Kinney and Sung by Ryan Hurst

    Looks like we might have received a clue about Beta's pre-ZA persona in this episode through a song written by Emily Kinney and seemingly sung by Ryan Hurst.

    https://comicbook.com/thewalkingdead/2019/11/04/the-walking-dead-beth-emily-kinney-song-easter-egg-beta-ryan-hurst-1005/?fbclid=IwAR2vJyRHeuxp-vQYtp5xYRsjBNGfUXib5iXdJEjPfzq1HtEVLTgyeK9Zp2Y


    Artist and former The Walking Dead star Emily Kinney confirmed on Sunday she was involved with an Easter egg included in episode 10x05, “What It Always Is.” At the Hilltop, when Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura) approaches Magna (Nadia Hilker) as she listens to a phonograph, the song playing is borrowed from “The Turtle and the Monkey” — Kinney’s just-released single. In the show, the melody of “The Turtle and the Monkey” backs new lyrics performed by a male singer, and the voice possibly belongs to Whisperer Beta (Ryan Hurst). Kinney played Beth Greene, daughter of Hershel (Scott Wilson) and younger half-sister of Maggie (Lauren Cohan), for four seasons between 2011 and 2014.


    The version of Kinney’s song depicted in the show sounds suspiciously like Hurst, who has hinted the masked Beta was a celebrity pre-apocalypse. Hurst’s tease came after an episode of spinoff Fear the Walking Dead included a suspected Easter egg seemingly revealing Beta’s true face.

    In Fear 5x14, “Today and Tomorrow,” a spilled pile of country records revealed a look at a cowboy hat-wearing singer that looks like the bearded Hurst. In TWD 10x05, the voice on Magna’s record sounds like Hurst, and the episode’s version of the song produces no results on Shazam. A

    That's a neat Easter egg. Can't say I liked the song, though. It's kind of annoying if they put a little nugget like that in FTWD, why bother?

    I’d hide my face with a skin mask too if I had to sing Emily Kinney songs.

    I didn't like the song, either.

    Found this out on her Twitter right after the episode aired. Pretty cool for her!
