Watch Ed Sheeran’s Game of Thrones cameo

Say what you will about Ed Sheeran, but he's got a Game of Thrones cameo and you don't.

July 16, 2017

People like to pick on Ed Sheeran. He’s an easy target. But no matter what they say, there’s one thing that’ll ring true: He’s been on Game of Thrones, and you haven’t.

Sheeran cameo’d on the show’s Season 7 premiere, and was seen singing—natch—by the far with his fellow soldiers. His only line is “It’s a new one” when asked by Arya what he was singing. The real answer? It’s an original piece co-written with composer Ramin Djawadi, featuring lyrics from the books.

“Ed sings those lyrics and he’s great,” Djawadi said to Billboard. We concur!
