Ellie Goulding, James Arthur & More Feature On ‘Game Of Thrones’ Soundtrack
This week marks the beginning of the end for Game Of Thrones. Sunday (April 14), HBO’s mega-successful series returns for one final season. Fans across the globe are waiting to see who will claim the Iron Throne and who will perish. And they’ll be able to do so while listening to a star-studded soundtrack. Today (April 9) HBO announced a partnership with Columbia Records to create an album of music inspired by the series. Called For The Throne, it arrives April 26. And it boasts a very impressive lineup of artists including the likes of Ellie Goulding, A$AP Rocky, Maren Morris, The Weeknd, James Arthur, SZA and many more.
The 14-song tracklist looks like it will also span a variety of genres. Rappers Travis Scott and Ty Dolla $ign appear alongside rockers like The Lumineers, Matthew Bellamy and Mumford & Sons. It’s also a global affair with contributions from international acts including Spain’s latest breakout act Rosalía. That’s not all. For The Throne features contributions from rising talents such as R&B divas Chloe X Halle and Lennon Stella. Fans have the option of purchasing a digital copy, but there are several vinyl editions available as well. All things considered, this sounds like a serious win.
The soundtrack is available for pre-order here. While we wait for it to arrive, check out a teaser video below for a full list of artists involved.
