Sigur Rós cover 'The Rains of Castamere' for 'Game Of Thrones' – listen

Song was originally recorded by The National

Sigur Rós's version of 'The Rains of Castamere' has been revealed. See above to hear the song now.

The Icelandic band's version of the song, originally recorded by The National, appeared on last night's episode of Game Of Thrones. The episode, titled 'The Lion And The Rose', will be broadcast on Sky Atlantic in the UK tonight (April 14).

As previously reported, members of Sigur Rós will appear in the new series of Game Of Thrones. Jonsi Birigisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason shot scenes in Croatia for the HBO show's forthcoming fourth series, which began its run earlier this month.

The bandmates play musicians in the programme and their cameo came about as showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are big fans of the Icelandic band and listened to their music while shooting the previous series in Iceland.

Coldplay drummer Will Champion and Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody made cameo appearances in series three of the programme.
