Maren Morris and The Lumineers have released “Kingdom of One” and “Nightshade” respectively, the first two tracks from For the Throne, an album inspired by HBO’s hit series, Game of Thrones.
“Kingdom of One” is an atmospheric tune that incorporates Morris’ moody vocals over acoustic guitars and dramatic percussion. “Would you sell your soul, burn it all / Everything that you love / Finally become second to none / In the kingdom of one,” she sings.
On the eerie “Nightshade,” frontman Wesley Schultz’s voice echoes over sinister-sounding piano chords: “Nightshade, won’t you take me away? / And I can hold my breath for another day / But it was all, it was all for the throne.”
For the Throne will also feature songs from A$AP Rocky, Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd, among others, and arrive on April 26. Listen to the first two releases from the album below:
