The Witcher viral hit 'Toss a Coin to Your Witcher' is finally available on Spotify and Apple Music
When a humble bard graced a ride-along with Geralt of Rivia, along came this song that’s now available on music streaming platforms.
Yes, “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher,” the song that even The Witcher actor Joey Batey called “the most annoying thing I’ve ever heard” after performing the ditty on the Netflix fantasy series, has officially arrived on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Deezer.
In fact, The Witcher Soundtrack Vol. 1, featuring the series score from composers Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli, will drop in its entirety on Jan. 24. But the song that became a viral hit with numerous fan covers powering YouTube is out now as the album’s single, courtesy of Milan Records.
Based on the fantasy novels that spawned the popular videogame series, The Witcher, starring Henry Cavill as the titular supernatural monster fighter Geralt of Rivia, premiered its first season on Netflix Dec. 20 and it became what the streaming company is reporting to be its biggest TV premiere ever. “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher” became a breakout hit with various memes to prove it.
Four tracks, including that catchy tune, were released online over the composers’ SoundCloud account. On Dec. 27, Belousova shared an update on the series’ official soundtrack via Instagram, writing, “We have the soundtrack ready to go and can’t wait to get it out, however, there’s no ETA at the moment since it is up to Netflix whether or not to make it happen.” She then urged fans to let Netflix know on social media how excited they were for the release, and Netflix apparently got the message.
