The creators of Game of Thrones have hidden the answer to the ending of the HBO series in a final season playlist.

David Benioff and DB Weiss released the compilation on Spotify in honour of their hit TV show coming to an end.

Aptly titled "The End Is Coming", it features songs including "POWER" by Kanye West, "Winterlong" by Neil Young and U2's "Love Is Blindness".

One song featured within the 50-track playlist, though, is the answer to how the series will draw to a close in May. Listen to the playlist on Spotify here.

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

The “sequel shows” he mentions includes a prequel series starring Josh Whitehouse and Naomi Watts that will be set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones.
