I'm legit a few episodes behind, but knowing that Florence and the Machine were once again involved with Game of Thrones, I just couldn't resist. So, like...watching the video may be full of spoilers, depending on where you're at in the series.
Via L.A. Times:
“Jenny of Oldstones,” a haunting song adapted from George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels, closed outEpisode 2 of Season 8, titled “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.” But first it was surprisingly sung by the benevolent squire (Daniel Portman) during a fireside scene that featured Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth, and several of Winterfell’s newcomers.
English singer Welch, whose song “Seven Devils” was featured in the Season 2 “Game of Thrones” trailer, recorded the new tune after being personally approached by show creators Benioff and Weiss, who are longtime fans.
“[T]he season 2 trailer with her song ‘Seven Devils’ was possibly the most powerful we’ve ever had. So the opportunity to hear her otherworldly voice on our show was always at the forefront of our minds,” Benioff and Weiss said in a statement to The Times. “We’re still pleasantly shocked that she agreed to sing ‘Jenny of Oldstones,’ and we’re in love with the result.”
“When I first heard the song it sounded like a Celtic lullaby to me,” Welch said. “Celtic music has always been in my blood, so I felt like I could do something with it. The magic and ritual in ‘Game of Thrones,’ not to mention the costumes, have always appealed to me. I am honored to be a part of the final season.”
