The Game of Thrones Season 8 Soundtrack Includes SZA, Maren Morris, The Weeknd, and More
Game of Thrones score, composed by musical genius Ramin Djawadi, has iconic songs like the show's pounding main theme and the haunting season six finale score, "Light of the Seven." Now the HBO series is getting a whole new set of songs to celebrate the imminent arrival of season eight from artists like SZA, Ellie Goulding, Maren Morris, The Weeknd, and more.
Columbia Records and HBO announced in early April that an album, For The Throne, is on the way. It includes a ton of brand new tracks inspired by the fantasy series, marking the first time HBO has partnered with a major label to curate a soundtrack. We can only pray that a sampling of Daenerys screaming "Dracarys" makes it on to at least one of the songs. (Or, at the very least, we get a Shame Nun Remix of some sort.)
Curious about whose vocals you'll hear on the album? Check them out:
Chloe X Halle
Mumford & Sons
Rosalía feat. A.CHAL
Ty Dolla $ign
Quite the lineup, eh? Artists are slowly dropping their singles from For The Throne to lead up to the official album release on April 26. So far we have three tracks available, including "Power Is Power" by SZA, Travis Scott, and The Weeknd and "Kingdom of One" by Maren Morris. The full album is available for preorder now, since it won't hit shelves until April 26, but in the meantime, enjoy everything that's been released ahead!
