The song from last night's episode is now available to stream online.
HBO has released a lyric video for "Jenny of Oldstones," the melancholy song featured in last night's episode of Game of Thrones. The video includes clips from various seasons of the show as the track's lyrics are shown on screen, often relating to the sequences they accompany.
"Jenny of Oldstones" is based on "Jenny's Song" from George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series. Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi wrote the music for the track and the show's writers added extra verses. Actor Daniel Portman, who plays Podrick Payne, sang the song in episode 2 of season 8, though the version here is the end credit's rendition performed by the band Florence + the Machine.

Game of Thrones: Season Eight consists of six episodes, with the series finale set to air on May 19. Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Iain Glen, Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Jerome Flynn, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Rory McCann all reprise their roles for the final batch of episodes.
And beyond the currently airing eighth season, HBO is set to start shooting a Game of Thrones prequel spin-off pilot this summer. Here's a synopsis per the network:
Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros' history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend… it's not the story we think we know.
The potential series comes George R. R. Martin and Jane Goldman (Kingsman, X-Men: First Class), and is set to star Naomi Watts as "a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret."
