Game Of Thrones is back this weekend. Sound the Horn of Joramun, Game of Thrones is back. HBO is looking to squeeze every last bit out of their cash cow knowing things may get a little lean after and their benevolent overlords AT&T may come in and fuck everything up. As part of that Game Of Thrones has announced a modern soundtrack, titled For The Throne, featuring the likes of A$AP Rocky, The National, Maren Morris, SZA, Travis Scott and many others.
This does not replace the original score that Ramin Djawadi has been composing and touring with over the past 10 years.
For The Throne will be released on April 26.
This isn’t the first time we have had songs created from modern acts about Game Of Thrones. Two Catch The Thrones mixtapes were released in 2014 and 2015 featuring names like Big Boi, Daddy Yankee, Ty Dolla $ign, Mastodon and more. The National recorded the famous “The Rains Of Castamere” for the show.
See the below list of acts on the soundtrack. A complete tracklist will be released soon, but according to Pitchfork, The Weeknd, SZA and Travis have a song together.
