Florence And The Machine Record Game Of Thrones Track Jenny Of Oldstones

Tuesday, 23 April 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

Florence and the Machine have recorded a version of Jenny of Oldstones.

Their take is a collaboration with producer Thomas Bartlett, while the original was written by Ramin Djawadi, George R.R. Martin, Dan Weiss, and David Benioff for Game Of Thrones, with the latter two also being creators of the television show. They said:

“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. 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 Welch added:

“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.”

The pared back track, which allows Welch's captivating vocals to take centre stage, premiered during the closing credits of the current season’s second episode. 

Florence and the Machine will continue to support their 2018 LP, 'High As Hope', with a North American tour during May and June.

They will also play some massive summer shows, including two performances as part of Edinburgh Summer Sessions, as well as headline sets at Electric Picnic, Hyde Park in London for British Summer Time and Boardmasters.
