The GoT’s selections of composer Ramin Djawadi’s music is all set to be released on September 29th.

According to a new pre-sale listing on Amazon, the soundtrack for Game of Thrones’ seventh season will be released on September 29th and will be available on all digital formats.

While talking to Billboard, Djawadi said, “That’s epic in its own right, so the music has to rise with that as well”; he further added that, “There’s some really beautiful, emotional scenes in this season and really amazing action scenes”.  The dragons have grown so much that musically I was able to push in both directions – emotional and action-packed.  A lot of times it’s very dialogue-heavy and the music stays in the background, so I use solo instruments like cello and violin. But now as we’re coming to the end with big scenes I can use bigger string selections and brass and choirs and get much bigger orchestra sounds.”

Djawadi is known for his work on television series including Westworld, Person of Interest and Prison Break, accompanied with countless contributions to films such as Warcraft, Pacific Rim and Iron Man, for which he received a Grammy nomination.  Djawadi is best known for the first Game of Thrones soundtrack in 2011, which went viral and peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard Soundtrack chart.
