The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Soundtrack now available

UPDATE: The soundtrack is now available. Find it on Amazon: and iTunes: .

WaterTower Music has posted 90-second preview samples to the soundtrack to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, featuring original music by Academy Award Winner Howard Shore and the original song “I See Fire” performed by GRAMMY Nominated singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

In the liner notes for the soundtrack, Peter Jackson writes: “Howard Shore – what can I say? His music soars and enriches way beyond its connection to our images. He truly has created an epic musical world of his own. A unique sound like no other. A year from now, we will be able to listen to well over 20 hours of musical story telling, that starts with An Unexpected Journey, and concludes with The Return of the King. That is Howard’s genius – he is carefully shaping this 6 part epic score as a fully unified narrative. This is the second chapter.”

The soundtrack will be released on December 10, 2013, three days before the December 13 release of the film. A Special Edition soundtrack, featuring twelve extended tracks, a bonus track, expanded liner notes and interactive sheet music will also be available. Pre-order via Amazon here, or I-Tunes here.
