The song White Walker was inspired by Mastodon band member Brann Dailor's love of the show Game of Thrones.
Side A features "White Walker," which was released digitally as part of the Game of Thrones mixtape Catch the Throne: The Mixtape, Volume 2. The track was commissioned by the show's producers when Mastodon appeared on the show as Wildlings. Welsh illustrator Richey Beckett designed the artwork, which was inspired by the show.
The B-Side of the 12" features an a Cappella version of "White Walker," the original idea for the song recorded by Brann Dailor on his iPhone in his kitchen.
The B-side artwork is a still from the episode in which the band appeared as murdered "wildlings" who are brought back to life by White Walkers.
