As anticipation for the April 14 premiere of the eighth season of Game of Thrones continues to swell, HBO and Columbia Records have announced a whole new angle to the excitement: the forthcoming release of a GoT-inspired album.

For The Throne (Music Inspired by the HBO Series Game of Thrones) will make its debut less than two weeks after the season’s premiere, featuring brand-new tracks from some of the music industry’s biggest names, including A$AP Rocky, Chloe x Halle, Ellie Goulding, Jacob Banks, James Arthur, Joey Bada$$, Lennon Stella, Lil Peep, The Lumineers, Maren Morris, Muse’s Matthew Bellamy, Mumford & Sons, The National, Rosalia and A.Chal, SZA, The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign, and X Ambassadors.

While a track list has yet to be released, the album’s iTunes page shows that the compilation will feature 14 songs. The physical album will feature 11 different vinyl versions: nine cover variants representing each house crest, one color variant with fire- and ice-colored vinyl, and one standard.

For the Throne is expected to drop April 26. Fans can pre-order their copy here.

Louis the Child continue to exert influence on the EDM pop sphere with a string of releases. Their newest, a collaboration with Jacob Banks, is a soulful pop ballad in which the duo forsake their carbonated future bass soundscape for a more downtrodden tune in which Banks lends his heartfelt tenor.

The song, which premiered on Perez Hilton, was part of the official Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack. “Time’s never late it is your currency. Oh, you can spend it how you like,” sings Banks. “Two empty souls won’t fill the vacancy. I know that’s heavy on your mind.”

Louis the Child isn’t typically the first electronic duo that come to mind when Fifty Shades is brought up, but we can’t say we’re too upset they’ve lent their hand to the film.
