Toss a coin to your Witcher!
If you can’t get this tune out of your head, you’re not alone. Joey Batey, who plays the lovable bard Jaskier in Netflix’s The Witcher, claims that he too can not get the song out of his head:
“I’ve had that for eight months. It’s been stuck in my head since the first time I heard it. I’ve gone to bed humming it. I wake up the next morning humming it. You do not know the hell that I’ve gone through.”
While it’s Jaskier’s song, Batey gives praise to the real people behind the tune:
“It’s thanks to the wonderful compositions of Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinellii, who are just superlative composers. They understand the power of song, but also the writers with the lyrics, the power of storytelling within this context and within this continent. It was a joy playing them on set, because I play them on set and I sing them on set and then I will go away and come back four months, five months later and record them in a studio, because […] if a plane flies over, then that’s a vocal take ruined. And so, coming back to the songs after I’d wrapped on the show and I was really missing it. I was missing the character and I was missing all the people involved. It was a lovely thing to be able to come into the studio and see them all again, and put on those Jaskier shoes. It was a really, really wonderful experience.”
