HBO to Release Game of Thrones Themed Mixtape (VIDEO)
Everyone loves theGame of Thrones theme song, but soon there will be music of a very different sort for Game of Thrones fans to enjoy. HBO is producing a Game of Thrones themed compilation called Catch The Throne: The Mixtape, which will include tracks from some of the industry's leading artists.
Need examples? The 10-song mixtape will feature exclusive tracks from the likes of Wale, Big Boi, Common and Daddy Yankee, as well as up up-and-coming artists such as Snow Tha Product, Bodega Bamz, and Magazeen.
The mixtape is obviously Game of Thrones inspired. Each song will sample from the Game of Thrones soundtrack, and since all of the artists involved are GoT fans, the songs are all about the show's themes and storylines. The idea is to inspire listeners who might not be up and up on their GoT to check it out.
As Lucinda Martinez, SVP of Multicultural Marketing at HBO, explained in a press release about the mixtape, "We are excited to create an additional fan touch point with Catch The Throne: The Mixtape. This is a unique opportunity to give fans great original music and an innovative way to highlight the electrifying Game of Thrones series."
