Sigur Ros to cover The National for ‘Game Of Thrones’ soundtrack

The Icelandic band also appear in the new season of the fantasy drama

Sigur Ros are set to cover The National for the Game Of Thrones soundtrack.

The Icelandic band will record their version of ‘The Rains of Castamere’, which was originally recorded by The National for the fantasy television show, reports The Line of Best Fit.

As previously reported, members of Sigur Ros 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 begins broadcasting in the US on April 6. 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, which airs in the UK on Sky Atlantic.
