JK Rowling continues to share Harry Potter magic with devotees on fan site Pottermore! Today, Rowling introduced music from “famed” witch singer Celestina Warbeck, who is mentioned as a favorite of Mrs. Weasley in the beloved series.

The release includes a full background on Ms. Warbeck, including her wand, schooling history and philanthropic endeavors for St. Mungo’s, as well as a big-band style jam titled “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart.” Sure, it sounds like the title of an enchanted country-western ballad, but instead features a smooth-voiced Celestina backed by a swinging brass band and cheeky lyrics like “When you disappeared at first it’s me who I blamed, but now I see you’re wicked as He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.”

Rowling also recently gave us a peek on Pottermore into the main characters’ epilogues via a scoop from fictional gossip columnist Rita Skeeter. If that’s not a reason to sign up for the site, I don’t know what is.
