Game of Thrones album ‘For the Throne’ is on the way
The Game of Thrones album has a modern spin.
As if the whole world isn’t shivering from excitement in anticipation for the 8th and final season of this tantalizing series, Columbia Records and HBO have announced a GOT album called For the Throne, which drops on April 26.
A star-studded affair, the album includes contributions from the Weeknd, SZA, Travis Scott, Joey Bada$$, Muse’s Matthew Bellamy, the late Lil Peep, Maren Morris, Joey Bada$$, ROSALÍA and more.
This is not the first-time artists are wanting to get in on this cash cow.
In 2012 The National offered us “The Rains of Castamere” and in 2014, Big Boi, Daddy Yankee, Common, and others brought out the first volume of the Catch the Throne mixtape.
Volume 2 of the Catch the Throne mixtape featured Mastodon, Estelle, Method Man, and more.
