Check out Florence + the Machine’s version of ‘Jenny of Oldstones’ from Game of Thrones

Florence + the Machine has landed a coveted artist feature on Game of Thrones.

The only artist to be featured in the show’s final season, her rendition of original Game of Thrones song 'Jenny of Oldstones' - originally sung by Podrick Payne - debuted during the closing credits of this season’s just-aired second episode.

“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,” says the show’s creators, Benioff and Weiss.

“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.”

“When I first heard the song it sounded like a Celtic lullaby to me,” says Florence. “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.”
