HBO has teamed up with some top artists for the second installment of Catch the Throne: The Mixtape for Game of Thrones.
Building on the success of Volume 1—with over 2.5MM streams to date and which attracted hip-hop and reggaeton fans alike,—Volume 2 will feature Method Man, Snoop Dogg and Yandel and will transcend genres by adding Grammy-nominated metal bands Anthrax and Killswitch Engage to the mixtape lineup. The mixtape will be released in anticipation of the Season 5 debut of Game of Thrones airing April 12 on HBO.
Produced by Launch Point Records, the 15-song mixtape features diverse artists representing Game of Thrones families, leveraging themes and highlights from Season 4. Showcasing the importance of music in Game of Thrones, each song on the mixtape samples music from the show's Season 4 soundtrack. This year's mixtape also weaves in the overarching theme of fire and ice, providing listeners with an exciting line-up of heavy metal and hip-hop artists.
This, I gotta hear. How cool! We love that KsE are involved!
