Brethren and wenches, gather ’round: this one’s so crazy, you can’t make it up.

The track will be released on Soundcloud sometime before the season 4 premiere on April 6th. In the meantime, witness this promo to prove this whole post isn’t an early April Fool’s prank:
UPDATE: Catch the Throne has just been released on Soundcloud!
