The time has come. Winter. The battle of the queens. The White Walkers. The possible devastating deaths of our favourite characters. The rightful heir to the Iron Throne. The theories. Everything.
From Adidas Ultra Boosts, to an Urban Decay make-up collection, and even Oreos, the Game of Thrones publicity department has been pretty bustling in making our world Games of Thrones-style, providing us with all things reminiscent of the show for one last time in light of its 8th and final season premiering this 14th of April.
Now, HBO and Columbia Records are set to soundtrack our Targaryen, Stark, and Lannister lives with a full-length music inspired by the show. Now we can feel like a modern-day Daenerys or Jon Snow—or maybe embrace our own inner Cersei as well?
Titled For The Throne, the show builds up a brand new hype for Sunday’s main event with this music led by R&B and hip-hop connoisseurs The Weeknd, SZA, and Travis Scott. While we are yet to hear the soundtrack in all of its glory until the 26th of April, the official Game of Thrones Instagram was pretty discreet in letting us get a taste of the song. Check out a fiery preview of the yet-to-be-named track below.
The album is in good company as well with features from Ellie Goulding, The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons, and X Ambassadors. See all the names of the big artists of various genres included in the 30-second preview below.

After what seemed like the longest 2 years of our lives, Game of Thrones devotees are about to finally get answers that we have longed for for 7 seasons this Sunday. And it seems like no detail should be taken with a blink of an eye. With many things to expect for in these last 6 episodes—the twists and the battles, perhaps our dreaded emotions over this show would go pretty well with a White Walker-themed whiskey.
Who do you think will sit on the Iron Throne?
