Jenny Lewis contributed a new song to the official soundtrack for the HBO show Girls. It’s a track called “Completely Not Me” which was produced by Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij.
If you watched the Girls season premiere last night you may remember hearing the song. It fit perfectly in the context of the show. It’s a hopeful and inspired track that definitely has Rostam’s fingerprints all over it. It definitely would sit quite nicely next to Modern Vampires Of The City.

They will perform a song called “The Bear and the Maiden Fair.” Game Of Thrones author George R.R. Martin wrote the lyrics, and the music is by the shows music man Ramin Djawadi. The song will be released as a Record Store Day exclusive 7″ single on April 20, along with a new song of The Hold Steady’s “Criminal Fingers” as the b-side.
Although an unlikely pairing, knowing The Hold Steady & Game Of Thrones, this is going to be a knockout.
The National are some of the busiest men making music. They contributed a track to the Game Of Thrones Season 2 soundtrack called “The Rains Of Castamere”. It’s a ballad that is referenced in the books, and plays an important role in the storyline.
The National + Game Of Thrones are literally two of my favorite things in my life right now. Life could definitely be worse.
