Music is coming.
Ahead of the upcoming premiere of Game Of Thrones season 8, a new album of music inspired by the fantasy show has been announced.
Due for release on April 26, the ‘For The Throne’ album will feature new and original tracks by Muse frontman Matt Bellamy (his first solo release), as well as The National, Ellie Goulding, Rosalía, Mumford & Sons, A$AP Rocky, Chloe x Halle, Jacob Banks, James Arthur, Lennon Stella, Joey Bada$$, The Weeknd, SZA, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Peep, The Lumineers and more.
‘For The Throne’ will be released on 11 different vinyl configurations, with nine cover variants for each of the show’s house crests, one colour variant with fire and ice coloured vinyl, and one standard.
Check out the trailer for the release, along with the Lanister and ‘Fire & Ice’ versions of the album below.
The National previously recorded a version of the show’s theme ‘Rains Of Castamere’ back in 2012, which was later covered by Sigur Ros.
“I don’t think it should be the final season. But here we are,” he admitted at last week’s New York premiere.“It seems to me we just started last week. Has it been longer than that? The time has passed by in a blur. But it’s exciting.
“I know it’s an end, but it’s not much of an end for me. I’m still deep in writing the books.
“We saw five other sequel shows in development. I think I’m going to be hanging around Westeros while everyone else has left.”
Game Of Thrones returns for a final run of six episodes on Sunday (April 14).
