(CBS News) We don't know much about what will happen in Sunday's "Mad Men" season premiere, but one thing is for sure: the plot will likely be historically accurate.

"Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner has pulled Dusty Springfield's 1967 hit "The Look of Love" from the episode after television critics noticed the song wasn't released until six months after the events of the episode took place.

"Although we take license for artistic purposes with the end-title music, we never want the source music to break from the time period we are trying to recreate," Weiner wrote to critics, according to Rolling Stone. "As someone who has a deep appreciation for details, I want to thank you for bringing this to our attention."

Weiner has replaced the Springfield track with one to match the time period.

Burt Bacharach and Hal David wrote "The Look of Love" for the 1967 film "Casino Royale."
