EDITORS’ NOTES

It isn’t just Joe and Jane Average curled up on the couch binge-watching Game of Thrones in comfy sweats; it’s also your favorite artists, cradling a bowl of snacks, streaming away on the tour bus. As this compilation of Thrones-inspired songs makes clear, their fascination with the fabled HBO drama runs deep. On “Too Many Gods,” A$AP Rocky and Joey Bada$$ mull over false prophets while dropping in a GoT reference (“Playing with fire but I’m no Targaryen”). Singer-songwriters like Jacob Banks, Lennon Stella, Chloe x Halle, and ROSALÍA imbue their tributes with stern keys and an existential dread that's so familiar to the show's fans. And it’s especially fun to hear a pop singer like Ellie Goulding tap into a sinister ruthlessness on “Hollow Crown”: “Making a noose out of your hollow crown/I hold a match up to your paper castle/And watch it all burn down, down, down.”
