Season four of Game of Thrones is officially on its way and after a “just desserts” kind of episode last night, fans can;t wait for more episodes especially after waiting a year for it to return to our screens.

About two weeks ago, the guys in Sigur Rós had revealed that they would be fortunate enough to have a cameo on the show and it just happened to be last night’s episode. In honor of their cameo, the band had recorded a cover of “The Rains of Castamere.”

At the time of the announcement, they had released a snippet of their cover, but over the weekend before the episode aired, the full cover had been released. This is not the first time that the song had been covered or that a band or musician had gotten the chance to have a slight appearance on the HBO show. During season two, The National got the opportunity to record the song for the show and last season, Will Champion of Coldplay played a drummer during the “Red Wedding” aka “The Rains of Castamere.”

It’s all connected, guys. Check out Sigur Rós’ cover and their cameo after the song.
