Ahead of the premiere of the eighth and final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, creators David Benioff and DB Weiss have compiled a Spotify playlist, which they insist contains spoilers about how the show will end. Game of Thrones’ conclusion has been the subject of much speculation, with fans wondering whether it will be Daenerys Targaryen or Jon Snow who comes out on top, or if anyone else will beat them to the Iron Throne.

Speaking to For the Record, Spotify’s news portal, Weiss and Benioff said, “The answer to the ending is one hundred percent hidden in the playlist choices. No one will believe us, but it’s true.”

Here’s the full list of artistes and songs on the playlist:

“We were looking for songs that made us feel the way the show made us feel,” the creators explained. “There’s variety in there—Rage is not Johnny Cash. But they both have a deep inherent power.”

The final season of the epic fantasy series will premiere on April 14 - April 15 in India - and will conclude the show’s record-breaking run, which has catapulted its stars to global fame and won numerous accolades along the way.

In a recent video, members of the cast spoke about bidding farewell to the show. Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, talked about how she saw the young kids grow up in front of her eyes. “I remember everybody clear. I remember baby Sophie (Turner) and baby Maisie (Williams) and baby Isaac (Hampstead-Wright). And now they are, you know, out there. Full grown,” she said.

Meanwhile, Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow on the show, said that everyone was too tired to feel emotional. “The last season of Thrones seemed to be designed to break us. Everyone was broken at the end. I don’t know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f**king tiring. We were sleep deprived. It was like it was designed to make you think, ‘Right, I’m f**king sick of this’,” Harington told GQ Australia.
