Brooklyn based band, The Hold Steady, have recorded a song for the soon-to-be-here third season of Game of Thrones. See details below from THR.
Game of Thrones is readying another musical foray. After two seasons of moody scores and a collaboration with The National, the HBO series has partnered with The Hold Steady for another single taken right out of the source material.
The Brooklyn band is set to release a limited-edition 7-inch in honor of Record Store Day 2013 (April 20th), and it includes a recording of “The Bear and the Maiden Fair” fromGeorge R. R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire novels.
Game of Thrones co-creators and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss approached the band about setting the tune to music and will use it in an upcoming episode.
You might recall that episode 307 is titled The Bear and the Maiden Fair, so it seems likely the song will make an appearance in that episode, but I guess we will have to wait and see!
