Lucinda Martinez, HBO’s senior VP of cultural marketing, says the network reached out to fans of the show to help create a musical tune-in incentive for millennials who might be casual fans or as-yet-uninitiated to the Game of Thrones cult by stating:
“We wanted to drop it a month in advance because people tend to binge-watch – especially now that winter is here. And the idea of having a bunch of artists create songs in different style with different interpretations of what ‘Game of Thrones’ is to them as artists could be an interesting way to get people engaged to watch it. We already know there’s a target that takes control and uses social media as am amplifier, so we wanted to give them outlet to share this with their friends in the best way to really target this audience”
The Game of Thrones ‘ fourth season premieres on April 6th at 9 PM EST/PST. Watch the new trailer below.
