HBO is hoping to soothe Game of Thrones fans this week following an emotive TV episode – with the launch of an official soundtrack.
WaterTower Music and HBO launched the digital 19-track album ‘Game Of Thrones (Music from the HBO Series) Season 3’. A physical CD is due to arrive on July 9th.
Grammy nominee Ramin Djawadi composed the score for the album.
It contains three different versions of the Game of Thrones theme – two previously unreleased.
"Dark Wings, Dark Words" is a downtempo choir version of the theme, and "For The Realm" is a solo guitar version performed by Djawadi.
Other songs include "The Bear And The Maiden Fair" by The Hold Steady and "It’s Always Summer Under The Sea". The latter is performed by Kerry Ingram who plays the character of Shireen on the show. Both songs were heard in Game of Thrones episodes this third season.
The $11.98 soundtrack is available through all digital retailers, CD retail locations as well as the HBO Shop (www.store.hbo.com).
Game of Thrones is based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice and Fire fantasy novels.
