The ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Soundtrack Has a Release Date


If the mournful tones of “The Rains of Castamere” gave you chills as you watched the Lannister army go up in flames in Game of Thrones Season 7, good news: You can listen to your heart’s content on September 29. According to Film Music Reporter, that’s when Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi’s Season 7 soundtrack comes out.

The show’s soundtrack has always been a stand-out, but Djawadi kicked it up to another level with “Light of the Seven” at the end of Season 6 — the score that accompanied the sequence leading up to the explosion of the Great Sept of Baelor.

In Season 7, he’s made ample use of The Rains of Castamere,” which has filled the audience with dread ever since its prominent placement in the Red Wedding. Lady Olenna Tyrell (RIP) even sung part of it before her death scene. It faded in and out of the battle in “The Spoils of War,” as Jaime Lannister watched his men burn with horror.

“The North Remembers” refrain has also played a major role in Season 7, adding extra emotion to Arya and Nymeria’s encounter and Bran and Arya’s respective returns to Winterfell.

Game of Thrones Season 7 is currently airing Sunday nights on HBO. The soundtrack comes out September 29.
