Lumineers, The National, Matt Bellamy, X Ambassadors contribute new songs for Game of Thrones Soundtrack
The Lumineers are one the many artists featured on For the Throne, the upcoming album featuring songs inspired by the smash hit HBO fantasy epic, Game of Thrones. The folk-rockers have now shared more details about their contribution.
The Lumineers shared a 15-second preview of the tune, featuring a soft piano playing over an image of a three-headed dragon — the sigil of House Targaryen and made it available for download today (Friday).
For the Throne also features new songs from Muse‘s Matt Bellamy, Mumford & Sons, X Ambassadors and The National, among others. The whole album arrives April 26.
The National previously recorded a version of “The Rains of Castamere”, which played over the end credits of season two episode “Blackwater”, and Mumford and Sons served as the real-life wedding band for Game of Thrones co-stars Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie.
For The Throne is available for pre-order in 11 different vinyl configurations: nine cover variants representing each house crest, one color variant with fire and ice colored vinyl, and one standard.
The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones premieres on HBO this Sunday, April 14.
