Here on vinyl for the first time, Grammy nominee Ramin Djawadi’s score for Game of Thrones Series 3 is integral to the fabric of the show with choir and orchestra counter-balanced by percussion and rhythmically driven sounds from the world music arena. His creative use of sound effects adds mystery and allure to this epic fantasy of political and sexual intrigue. This third collection of music from the series 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.
