Listen to James soundtrack the new ‘Game Of Thrones’ trailer


The first teaser trailer for Game Of Thrones‘ seventh season dropped this afternoon (March 30), and everyone has immediately chimed in on hints, clues, and queues. But most striking to us is the inclusion of James 1989 alternative classic “Sit Down,” which boldly plays while Cersei (Lena Headey), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) all take their respective seats before we are led to gaze into the blue eye of the Night King.

“Ah yes, Sit Down, is the song behind the new Game of Thrones trailer,” tweeted James frontman Tim Booth. “Now if they only invite us to play at Daenery’s coronation…”

Let’s hope that happens. In fact, the longshot odds of eventually enlisting Booth, who appeared as Victor Zsaz in 2005’s Batman Begins, might be the most predictable thing about the new season ahead.


Game Of Thrones returns to HBO on July 16.
