Listen To Westworld’s Composer Ramin Djawadi Amazing Cover of “Sweet Child O’ Mine”

HBO’s Westworld is known for its orchestral covers popular songs such as “Paint It Black,” and “Seven Nation Army” by series composer Ramin Djawadi.

Now the composer has created an amazing cover of Guns N Roses‘ classic “Sweet Child O’ Mine.”

The nearly three-minute teaser that just recently debuted opens with a haunting voiceover from diehard ‘bot Dolores Abernathy (Evan Rachel Wood), who says, “I was born into this world, and my first memories of it are pain.” That leads to a quick-cut of series regulars Jeffrey Wright (Bernard Lowe) and Tessa Thompson (Charlotte Hale), as well as menacing newcomer Aaron Paul, who pops up next to a towering, Terminator-like robot as Dolores reveals that this season the androids are crossing over into the human world.

In another welcome return, just over a minute into the trailer, as Thandie Newton’s Maeve Millay gets orders to track Dolores down composer Ramin Djawadi serves up another of his signature ominous piano covers of a classic rock tune with his creeping take on Guns N’ Roses‘ “Sweet Child O’ Mine.” Opening with the song’s signature intro on piano instead of guitar, the driving cover picks up pace as we see the seeming return of The Man in Black (Ed Harris), with the strings swelling to a crescendo as Dolores warns, “the real gods are coming, and they’re very angry.”
