There is one week, one week until the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones unites the world. Over the last few days, stars of all seasons gathered in New York for the official premiere, first reactions to episode one appeared on Twitter, and Kit Harington hosted Saturday Night Live feat. Emilia Clarke, Rose Leslie, John Bradley, and the Night King played by Pete Davidson. Now, it is being reported that The Weeknd has teamed up with SZA and Travis Scott on a song that will feature in season eight.

The good Game of Thrones news, it never ends.

Rumours about the track first swirled on both Reddit and Travis Scott fan pages but now an insider has confirmed the news to Pitchfork.

According to a source close to the project, Game of Thrones approached The Weeknd with the task and after accepting it, Abel hit up both SZA and Scott for a collaboration.

The Weeknd has worked with Scott on the latter’s tune ‘Wonderful’ and Scott features on SZA’s ‘Love Galore’. 

On Instagram, Game of Thrones uploaded a number of badass portrait videos from the premiere. Interestingly, and as a couple of fans have pointed out, the accompanying music sure does sound like something by The Weeknd.

It’s all very mysterious.

As for a few first reactions to episode one of season eight, critics have called it “fantastic” and not something “to watch on your phone.” 

Prior to the premiere, the cast gave a final bow on stage. You don’t even need to zoom in to spot Khal DragoThe Hound, The Mountain, Brienne of Tarth, and Hodor.

In Australia, the final season of Game of Thrones will premiere Monday, 15 April.
