It’s been more than a week since Netflix released its adaptation of The Witcher series, and for those who’ve binged it, you’re undoubtedly privvy to the show’s catchy song “Toss A Coin To Your Witcher”, sung by Jaskier (played by Joey Batey). You’re also probably wondering to yourself: why isn’t the song available on Spotify, Apple Music, or Google?
The answer to that question is, to our surprise, remarkably simple; Netflix has not officially released it. As if the wait wasn’t excruciating enough, Sonya Belousova – one of the composers for The Witcher’s soundtrack – told her fans in an Instagram post the internet streaming service still isn’t giving an ETA for it.
So far, the only way that we are able to listen to “Toss A Coin To Your Witcher” on relatively official level is via a post on the composer’s Soundcloud page. Of course, it surprises no one that you can also find multiple postings of the song on YouTube, and all of varying quality.
Despite mixed reviews, Netflix’s adaptation of The Witcher has proven itself to be a success, both among fans and newcomers of the series. A week after its release, Steam reported a surge of interest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, This includes gamers who already the own the game downloading and replaying it, as well as people purchasing the title for the first time.
Ultimately, we sure do hope Netflix releases the soundtrack soon. After it would be a shame if users on the popular music streaming services had no way of hearing of how Jaskier was attacked with masterful deceit, had his lute broken, and his teeth kicked in. Well, that and how we don’t think it’s fair that Batey had the song stuck in his head for eight months straight.
