Netflix is Finally Releasing ‘The Witcher’ Soundtrack Because It Slaps Harder Than Any Monster

Thankfully, you don’t have to wait another 48 hours to immediately start jamming out to “Toss a Coin”, because it’s available now on Spotify and iTunes, where you can pre-purchase the full album for $9.99. Ten dollars translates into a whole lotta coins to toss, and every single one of them deserves to be bounced off the Witcher’s booty and into his money bag.

There truly is nothing new under the sun, but sadly that also includes highly questionable copyright hits on YouTube, pointing out that very thing. – Andy, TorrentFreak » https://ift.tt/36MaUA5
