Florence + the Machine’s version of the original Game of Thrones song 'Jenny of Oldstones' has debuted during the closing credits of this season’s second episode, following a rendition sung by Podrick Payne earlier in the show. Listen to the song, produced by Thomas Bartlett, here and watch the lyric video here.
Florence, the only artist to be featured in the final season of the hit HBO series, recorded 'Jenny of Oldstones' after being personally approached by the show’s creators, longtime Florence fans David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
“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. 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.David Benioff and D.B. Weiss
When I first heard the song it sounded like a Celtic lullaby to me. 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.Florence Welch
