Game of Thrones' shortened, expedited seventh season wraps up this Sunday (8/27) with the longest episode the show has ever done (80 minutes). This is the first season of GoT to completely outpace George RR Martin's books (The Winds of Winter is coming up on two years past deadline) and the heightened pace has excised some of his subtleties, and perhaps careful plotting, which has drawn mixed reactions from critics and fans. We'll see how it all shakes out on Sunday, but until then you can check out the Season 7 soundtrack which was just released digitally today. It features Ramin Djawadi's score and absolutely no Ed Sheeran, and you can stream that, along with a pretty interesting promotional video about Djawadi's process, below.

Meanwhile, in uncoincidental timing, Kristian Nairn, who already worked as a progressive house DJ before landing the plum role of Hodor on the show (and who has more free time on his hands these days), brought his "Rave of Thrones" party to Brooklyn's Output on Thursday night (8/24). Output has a strict no-picture policy but a few daring partiers dared anyway. A few instagram pics/videos are below.

Game of Thrones' final season, only six episodes, may not air till 2019.
