Florence + The Machine Debuts New Song “Jenny of Oldstones” from Season 8 of “Game of Thrones”
- British alt-rock band Florence + The Machine debuted a brand-new song “Jenny of Oldstones” during the end credits of “Game of Thrones” latest episode.
“When I first heard the song it sounded like a Celtic lullaby to me,” lead singer Florence Welch said in a statement. “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 honored to be a part of the final season.”
HBO premiered eighth season of “A Game of Thrones” on April 14, 2019.
- "Game of Thrones" co-showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss asked Florence + the Machine to record the song for the final season of the show. “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.”
