HBO Releases a Game of Thrones Mixtape
While some of us will be experiencing withdrawals when HBO’s Girls season finale airs on March 23rd, 2014. Season 4 of Game of Thrones will air this spring, April 6, 2014, with a clever strategy to diversify their viewership.
HBO will release an exclusive free mixtape this Friday, the network has collaborated with some of the music industry’s top artists, for its first Game of Thrones: The Mixtape; which will feature 10 original tracks combined with episode snippets, from artists like Wale, Big Boi, Common, and Daddy Yankee.
“We are excited to create an additional fan touch point with Catch The Throne: The Mixtape,” says Lucinda Martinez, SVP of Multicultural Marketing at HBO. “This is a unique opportunity to give fans great original music and an innovative way to highlight the electrifying ‘Game of Thrones’ series.”
We had a chance to listen to some of the tracks, and some of our favourites: Mother of Dragons – Big Boi, Ladder – Common and the theme song King Slayer by Wale.
Check it out below and share your thoughts.
The sound quality of the tracks amazing. Some of the reggaeton songs are a bit misplaced, but the fillers are placed strategically after the monster tracks to hold your interest. Adding the dialogue snippets good touch.
