Finally, a Game of Thrones song that isn't this (though we still love that one for its very self-explanatory lyrics). Coldplay has teamed up with Game of Thrones on a musical to celebrate Red Nose Day in the US (tomorrow, Thursday, 21 May) and the first teaser features Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister in the series.

He croons about the now-dead characters from the series including Ned Stark, King Robert Baratheon, Robb Stark and King Joffrey Baratheon, underlining Game of Thrones' notoriety for killing off characters (whether popular or unanimously hated), no brutality spared.

"Characters get cut for various reasons," he sings in the bluesy song. "Some people's parts just ain't very long, but not me. I'm still going strong."

True, despite being a dwarf who is shunned and underestimated by the society, Tyrion's intelligence and wit have kept him alive – the HBO show is in its fifth season now.

The best part is, it doesn't look like Peter's the only one who's in the musical. We spot Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy) and Thomas Sangster (Jojen Reed) in the behind-the-scenes photo below. And of course that's Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, third from right.
