The music of Game of Thrones was presented to audiences across the globe for the first time on this year’s Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience tour. Dramatic arrangements from composer Ramin Djwadi stunned the crowd, as did the eye-popping visuals. The only thing missing? Apparently a cast member sing-along to Tom Waits.
Recently, Kristofer Hivju, who plays the role of Tormund the Wildling, posted an Instagram video of him tackling the 1973 Waits track “I Hope I Don’t Fall In Love With You”. For the guitar and ukelele-assisted cover, Hivju was accompanied by fellow GoT mates Iain Glen (Ser Jorah), Rory McCann (The Hound), and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion).
“Brother without banjos!” wrote Hivju. “Our new album is called: ‘What will fate bring us???’” I’m no marketing expert, but a GoT cast member covers album timed to coincide with the show’s final season sounds like a nifty idea.
Watch the video below.
