90 minutes of music created by German-Iranian composer Ramin Djawadi
The official soundtrack to Game Of Thrones season six is to be released as a triple-vinyl set on September 30, with pre-orders available now.
The triple LP contains over 90 minutes of music created by German-Iranian composer Ramin Djawadi, who has scored every episode of Game Of Thrones, as well as writing the hit Sky Atlantic show’s theme tune. The album’s trifold jacket will also include an etching of the “house sigils”.

The season’s finale, The Winds Of Winter, drew its highest ever ratings in the US, pulling in a record 8.9 million viewers when it aired last month (June), shortly before showrunner Dan Weiss confirmed that “the end is ticking”, at the same time as the directors for season seven were revealed. It is widely expected that – following the likes of The Sopranos and Mad Men – season eight will be the show’s last.
In more light-hearted news for Game Of Thrones fans, President Obama appeared in a clip which saw him undertake various tasks that are supposedly more difficult than registering to vote, including naming all the characters that have died in the series. That was before it was revealed that Game Of Thrones funding could be massively hit by Brexit, as it will no longer be eligible for EU funding.
Large portions of the HBO show are shot in locations across Northern Ireland, meaning that it has previously received funding from the European Regional Development Fund. But Britain’s decision to leave the EU means it could now be forced to tone down its costly production values and big-budget action sequences.
