Ahead of tonight's episode, "Body Double," The CW has released the first footage of Josie and her band singing "All For Me." In the episode, aspiring songwriter Archie is recruited by the Pussycats to help the group finish a lyric for their new song.

"So far in the series, we’ve seen the Pussycats perform two covers, but in this episode, we see them doing an original song, ‘All For Me,’ at an event Josie’s mom, Mayor McCoy, is hosting for Riverdale," executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa explained in a statement. "A bit less pop than what we might normally associate with the Pussycats, but a really great showcase for their voices and talents — with more original songs to come."

Starring K.J. Apa as Archie Andrews, “Riverdale” airs Thursdays at 9 pm on The CW. The series also stars Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Ross Butler as Reggie Mantle and more. “Breakfast Club” alum Molly Ringwald will also recur as Archie’s mother Mary.
