The popular and beloved HBO fantasy series, Game Of Thrones, is reaching its end. But in true Thrones fashion, it’s determined to go out with a bang. The eighth season may be the shortest, but it’s already shaping up to be the most emotional and most epic. It also features the most intense battle of the series, which took 55 nights to shoot! This season is nothing if not massive, but that just didn’t seem like enough to really wrap up the season. Along with a 2 hour documentary that will be airing after the season ends, Game Of Thrones is getting its own soundtrack, and its finally available to buy and stream!
The series released the long-awaited soundtrack on Friday morning. You can buy it on Amazon Music and iTunes, as well as stream it for free on YouTube and Spotify! The soundtrack features songs by Ellie Goulding, James Arthur, Mumford & Sons, A$AP Rocky, the Weeknd, SZA, and more.
Any good soundtrack will feature songs to fit any type of mood, and For The Throne is no exception. If you’re in the mood for something acoustic, Devil In Your Eye by Mumford & Sons is for you. If you’re in the mood for something that feels like it came right out of Westeros, Pray by Matt Bellamy is the one to listen to! A lot of it is in High Valyrian! From The Grave by James Arthur will probably make you cry, while Power Is Power by SZA, The Weeknd, and Travis Scott will make you feel like the most powerful King/Queen in the Seven Kingdoms!
Each artist featured on this album outdid themselves, and truly gave it their all to help wrap up this incredible series. There are countless references to both Thrones and its characters in these songs, and while the thought of saying goodbye to the show brings tears to our eyes, For The Throne reminds us of everything we love about it. This soundtrack could not be more perfect.
