Emilia Clarke, also known as Daenerys Targaryen has recorded a reggae track for the Coldplay Game Of Thrones musical. Watch footage below.  

Following in the footsteps of Peter Dinklage's triumphant 'Still Goin' Strong' and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's "Closer to Home", Clarke has recorded the track for the Red Nose Day special by Coldplay. As she explains in the video 'George RR Martin meets Chris Martin - what could go wrong?'

With lines like 'I'm a Rastafarian Targaeryen/ I got some dragons and they're very scary-en." and a delivery oddly reminscent of early Lily Allen, it shows conclusively that Clarke doesn't take herself too seriously and why Coldplay have never made a dub record. Note: you will need to remember it's for charity when you hear Clarke's toasting.

The first American incarnation of Red Nose Day took place on 21 May. 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."
