We loved the latest Game of Thrones Season 6 trailer and also loved the brilliant soundtrack that it featured. The song is James Vincent McMorrow’s cover of Chris Isaak’s ‘Wicked Game’ and Wall Street Journal got in touch with the Irish singer to know how it feels to be part of something as big as Game of Thrones.
“It’s funny when the request came in to use the song I was literally on the last day of my new record, I was so absorbed in it that the request barely caught my eye. Then about two days later I had this moment where I was like, ‘Wait, did they ask to use my song in something to do with Game of Thrones!??’”
McMorrow adds that he felt his cover was the perfect match for the trailer:
“It’s one of those rare love songs that is also incredibly gritty, it’s a sentimental song but it’s also hard as nails. Isn’t that what ‘Game of Thrones’ is? Love stories interspersed with unrelenting grit and violence.”
