For seven seasons HBO’s phenomenon Game of Thrones has stunned audiences with its hard-hitting dramatics, loss of beloved characters and incredible storylines. One thing that does make all of the difference is the breathtaking score that plays throughout each episode, making somber scenes more emotional, battle scenes more thrilling and character deaths more tragic. As the much anticipated first episode of the series’ final season taking place this Sunday, the network announced they would mark the occasion of the ending of the show with original songs recorded by the some of modern times biggest artists like SZA, Ellie Goulding, The Weeknd, X Ambassadors, and country music’s very own Maren Morris. The full soundtrack, For The Throne, will be available everywhere you buy or stream music on April 26th but released today, (April 12th) was Morris’s song from the album “Kingdom of One”.
Her haunting vocals on the ballad fit perfectly into the cunning lyrics written by Morris, Eric Frederic, Nate Mercereau, Sam Harris and Wayne Hector. “Would you sell your soul, burn it all, everything that you love, finally become second to none, in a kingdom of one” For fans of the show, they know the references to burning everything to the ground for the right to sit on the Iron Throne and to rule the seven kingdoms is not unheard of.
Sharing on social media Morris captioned a teaser clip of the song; “channeled my inner Daenerys Targaryen for this one. who’s ready for the @gameofthrones premiere this weekend? let “Kingdom of One” take you there…”
Morris is no stranger to crossover songs that have hit it big, her collaboration with Zedd and Grey “The Middle” was a huge song in 2018, garnering billions of streams and award nominations. To find out who will end up on the Iron Throne, tune in this Sunday, April 14th at 9:00 PM on HBO for the final season of Game of Thrones premiere.
