The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is officially underway, and HBO is celebrating with a new album inspired by show. For the Throne is due out April 26th through Columbia Records and includes an impressive list of contributing artists, perhaps mighty enough to make those pesky White Walkers think twice about advancing south.
Check out the Game of Thrones scene on which the song’s titled may have been based.
For the Throne also includes new music from The National, Mumford and Sons, and Rosalía. MUSE’s Matthew Bellamy, ASAP Rocky, Lil Peep, and Ellie Goulding also appear.
The popular music world has never been a stranger to the Seven Kingdoms. The National previously recorded a version of “The Rains of Castamere”, which played over the end credits of season two episode “Blackwater”, and Mumford and Sons served as the real-life wedding band for Game of Thrones co-stars Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie. Additionally, the HBO series has featured cameos from Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, and Sigur Rós.
