Appearing on vinyl for the first time, Game of Thrones Series 3 will be released on the 30th March as a double LP. The initial run will be limited to 1000 copies and the gatefold sleeve is produced as a black/silver duotone image. The vinyl has a blood splatter effect which as fans of the show will know, recalls the bloody end of most of the Stark family.
Grammy nominee Ramin Djawadi’s score for Game of Thrones Series 3 offers fans three different versions of the Game Of Thrones theme – two of them previously unreleased. “Dark Wings, Dark Words” is a downtempo choir version whilst “For The Realm” is a solo guitar version performed by Djawadi himself. Additional music includes “It’s Always Summer Under The Sea (Shireen’s Song)” performed by Kerry Ingram who plays Shireen in the show along with “The Bear And The Maiden Fair” sung by US indie rock band The Hold Steady.
