HBO releases Game of Thrones inspired LP, ‘For The Throne’For The Throne Album E1554838853499 1

HBO and Columbia Records have released For The Throne (Music Inspired by the HBO Series Game of Thrones), just in time for fans to indulge right before the final season’s third episode airs on April 28. The album features from some of music’s biggest artists, including The Weeknd, SZA, Travis Scott, The Lumineers, A$AP Rocky, Lil Peep, Maren Morris, and more. The LP boasts 14 total tracks, each of which bears its own distinctive voice and stylistic influences. Track names like “Power is Power,” “Hollow Crown,” and “Too Many Gods” find their inspiration from characters and plot-lines that Game of Thrones viewers will recognize, and certainly appreciate.

Game of Thrones previously enlisted the help of the music world for various collaborations, which prompted cameos from Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Sigur Rós, and the infamous “Rains of Castamere,” as recorded by The National. The most recent original song, “Jenny of Oldstones,” was written by Florence and the Machine for the eighth and final season. The song shattered Shazam’s all-time record —previously held by Adele’s “Hello”— after it debuted during Episode Two’s ending credits.

For The Throne is available both digitally and in vinyl. The collection comes in 11 different vinyl configurations. Listeners will have the choice of nine different variants, with each representing a house crest. There is also a fire and ice stylized configuration, as well as a standard.
