"Game of Thrones" will return for its fourth season this Sunday, April 6th, on HBO. As previously reported, icelandic post rockers Sigur Ros is set to make a cameo on the show, but their participation doesn't end there.

As Film Music Reporter points out (via Consequence of Sound), the band has also recorded a version "The Rains of Castamere," the song written by George R. R. Martin that famously soundtracked the Red Wedding episode.

According to Amazon, Sigur Ros' version will be available beginning April 13th. You can stream a short preview of the song here.

The National previously covered "The Rains of Castamere" for an episode in season two. Revisit their rendition below.
