Atlantic Records officials are trying to track down the person who leaked a part of the Suicide Squad soundtrack. And they’re asking Reddit to help them in their search.

According to TMZ, the record label filed documents claiming someone had released a song from the album about a week before its scheduled drop date. The track was Twenty One Pilots’ "Heathens," which was reportedly given to a small group of individuals—such as band members and label executives—before it went public. TMZ reported that the song appeared online only a day after it was sent out. Atlantic said someone uploaded "Heathens" to and then posted the link on Reddit.

The leak forced the record label to push up the track’s release date, which resulted in lost revenue because the marketing campaign wasn’t scheduled to launch until a week later. Atlantic is now asking the courts to subpoena Reddit so it can identify the person who is responsible for the leak. 

The full Suicide Squad soundtrack drops Aug. 5, and it includes songs by everyone from Wiz Khalifa and Lil Wayne to Skrillex and Rick Ross. You can listen to a preview of the album in the movie's latest teaser here
