The latest episode of Game of Thrones’ final season had some really emotional moments, with one of them being Podrick singing Jenny’s Song while sitting by the fireside along with a host of other characters. The same song has been turned into an original track by Florence and the Machine, and was played upon the rolling of the end credits. The song has been grabbing a lot of attention online owing to the hidden meaning it might have with the TV show’s rich story.
Florence happens to be the only artist to be featured in the final season of Game of Thrones. She was apparently personally approached by the show’s creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Jenny of Oldstones or Jenny’s song has been penned by Ramin Djawadi, Dan Weiss, David Benioff and George R.R. Martin.
“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,” said Benioff and Weiss through a statement. “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.”
Florence revealed, “When I first heard the song it sounded like a Celtic lullaby to me. 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.”
Game of Thrones is in its final season, and with 2 episodes down, we will finally be getting episodes that are well lengthier than 60 minutes. The show has been running since 2011, and has spawned some of the most memorable moments in TV history. You can watch new episodes of the show on Hotstar at 6:30 am every Monday.
