Listen to The National's Contribution to the <i>Game of Thrones</i> Soundtrack

After The National appeared on the Portal 2 soundtrack last summer, they’re at it again with a song for HBO’s Game of Thrones.

The song, which is their rendition of an in-the-show song called “The Rains of Castamere” (just “Castamere” in The National’s case) features frontman Matt Berninger softly singing, you know, Game of Thrones-type lyrics on top of sparse medieval-sounding musical accompaniment.

Berninger’s vocal chops are getting a workout this week, closely following the announcement of his narration of the iPad version of a children’s book. Check out the song in full below.
