Everyone is watching, everyone is talking, everyone is waiting, everyone likes it. Everyone has heard, even those who didn't look! Yes, I'm talking about the "Game of Thrones".
And two days ago "The New York Times" on the site a nd on the Twitter page reported: Florence + the Machine wrote the end-credits song to Sunday's episode of "Game of Thrones." Read our exclusive interview with the band frontwoman, Florence Welch.
It's strange that the tweet was deleted today, but I will tell you about the details.
- "That was for Season 2 — an eternity in pop culture time — when they had wanted that band’s frontwoman, Florence Welch, to sing “The Rains of Castamere.” Florence and the Machine turned down the request at the time, but Benioff and Weiss never let go of the idea.
- “We’ve always been huge fans of Florence’s music,” they said in a joint 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.”
- Perhaps it was an easier sell now that Welch, like so many millions of others, is a fan."
