Florence + The Machine have a new song just for Game of Thrones

A brand new Florence + The Machine song ‘Jenny of Oldstones’ will debut in this week’s episode of Game of Thrones.

The song made its first appearance earlier in the episode sung by Podrick Payne. The Florence + The Machine version was used for the closing credits of the show.

Florence + The Machine are the only artists featured in the final season of Game of Thrones. The show’s creators David Benoff and D.B. Weiss where fans and asked Florence Welch to song the song.

“We’ve always been huge fans of Florence’s music, and the Season 2 trailer with her song ‘Seven Devils’ was possibly the most powerful we’ve ever had,” say Benioff and Weiss. “So the opportunity to hear her otherworldly voice on our show was always at the forefront of our minds. 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,” says Florence. “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 honoured to be a part of the final season.”

“Jenny of Oldstones” was written by Ramin Djawadi, Dan Weiss, David Benioff and George R.R. Martin.
