Florence + the Machine’s version of the Game of Thrones song “Jenny of Oldstones” made its debut in the show’s end credits during this season’s second episode, but last night (May 10) Florence Welch and her band performed the track live for the very first time.
“I’d like to dedicate this next song to Arya Stark, who saved us all,” Welch said during her performance at the FORM Arcosanti festival in Arizona.
“When I first heard the song it sounded like a Celtic lullaby to me,” she originally said in a statement about the song. “Celtic music has always been in my blood, so I felt like I could do something with it. The magic and ritual in Game of Thrones, not to mention the costumes, have always appealed to me. I am honoured to be a part of the final season.”
