The explosive Game of Thrones season 6 trailer has finally landed, and an Irish voice provides the haunting soundtrack.

Dublin singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow performs Chris Isaak's 'Wicked Game' as the events play out on the teaser which runs to just 1 minute 41 seconds.

The song is the perfect accompaniment to the trailer which teases a season of conflict and revenge which closes with Ser Davos standing next to the body of Jon Snow as he unsheathes a sword, adding: “Apologies for what you are about to see.”

HBO have confirmed that Game of Thrones will return on April 24, 2016. Sky Atlantic will simulcast the premiere with HBO, so UK and Irish fans won't be missing out. The announcement was made via HBO's Twitter account.

James plays the Royal Hospital Kilmainham with Sigur Ros on June 26.
