The previews from volume two of Catch the Throne are flowing freely this week! Yesterday, HBO dropped several more video clips on Youtube, offering samples of the Thrones-inspired tunes.
Plus, via Complex, HBO has released a complete track, “Lord of the Light,” by hip hop artist Talib Kweli.
Update: HBO has confirmed that Catch the Throne Vol. II will be released on March 17th on Soundcloud, and that each act has been aligned with a Game of Thrones family, displayed in their track.
The full list of artists includes: Anthrax, Estelle, Kap G, Killswitch Engage, Mastodon, Melanie Fiona, Method Man, MNDR, Mushroomhead, Raquel Sofia, Snoop Dogg, Stalley, Talib Kweli, Ty Dolla $ign, and Yandel.
In a statement released by HBO, Talib Kweli says, “I am a big fan of the books and the series,” and that, “As an MC, I’m not adverse to the concept of battles and ability to tell compelling stories and the Game of Thrones series does just that. It is the reason I wanted to be a part of this mixtape.”
Check out his song and the newest video samples from the others below the cut:
The four brief videos released feature Talib Kweli, rapper Kap G, electronic artist MNDR, and metalcore band Killswitch Engage.
Sue the Fury: Quite an eclectic bunch that Game of Thrones has put together this year for the mixtape! So far I’m liking Talib Kweli’s track the most of the lot.
