Watch Game Of Thrones' Jaime Lannister perform with Coldplay

Jaime Lannister is the next Game Of Thrones character to have released a song with Coldplay for their Red Nose Day musical version of Game Of Thrones.

Following on from Peter Dinklage's track yesterday, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau sings a forlorn love ballad to his character's sister and lover Cerci Lannister. As watchers of the show will know, the Lannisters aren't exactly the most open about their love. But Coster-Waldau has taken on the piano led ballad to declare his love in this very creepy song. 

Opening with the line of "Could you lend me a hand because I've only got one? I miss my fingers like you miss your son" lead into a very competent performance from the actor, who surprisingly has a great voice for this type of song.

The first American incarnation of Red Nose Day takes place on 21st May and airs on NBC.

As previously reported Coldplay recently confirmed they are working on their seventh album, entitled A Head Full Of Dreams. Posting a note on their website they explained: 'Hello everyone. We are in the studio working on A Head Full Of Dreams. While that's happening Phil and Anchorman and The Oracle and Roadie #42 have been getting the timeline updated. Here it is and thank you very much to them and you."

Last year Martin told Radio 2's Jo Whiley that A Head Full Of Dreams will be their seventh and potentially final album - one that could be a departure from the stripped back fare of Ghost Stories. Speaking on the radio, Martin explained how it would be full of "bombast" and that everything was already "mapped out".

"You know Harry Potter and things have instalments, and you know we just made an introspective record and didn't really do much around it," he said. "Secretly we may have something else in mind, but I accidentally told Zane [Lowe] about it." He added: "We're trying to make something colourful and uplifting and we're just having quite a good time making it because we've spent so long not making that kind of thing."
