The final season of Game of Thrones is full of surprises, but one of the most pleasant ones was end credits song “Jenny of Oldstones” by Florence and the Machine.
Fans of the show immediately fell in love with this harrowing tune, and the band has finally performed it in front of a live audience for the first time.
Florence Welch delivered soulful rendition of the band’s latest hit during a recent concert at Arizona’s FORM Arcosanti Festival.
She gave a shout-out to fan favorite Arya Stark, and dedicated the song to her because she “saved us all.”
“Jenny of Oldstones” was featured during end credits of the second episode of Game Of Thrones’ final season, titled “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.”
Showrunners D.B. Weiss and Dan Benioff approached Florence, who was a long time-fan of the show and accepted their invitation because the project seemed intriguing.
“The notes of it sounded like a Celtic folk song to me. I thought it was really beautiful. I love the idea of dancing with ghosts and never wanting to leave. That totally makes sense to me. I feel like I do that every night on stage,” Welch said in an interview with The New York Times.
