Pre-Order ‘The Hobbit’ Soundtrack!

Howard Shore is returning to Middle-earth by way of the recording studio. In addition to The Lord of the Rings films, the first and third of which he received Academy Awards for, he has also created the score for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

He also won the Oscar for best original song for The Return of the King credit song, “Into The West,” sung by Annie Lennox. It was recently announced that New Zealand artist Neil Finn of the band Crowded House will provide the song for the end credits of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Could it be yet another award winning combination?

The 2-Disc Audio CD from Water Tower Music is available for pre-order on Amazon, in both a Standard Edition and a Special Edition. It’s not yet clear what extras will be included on the Special Edition, but both albums will be released on December 11, 2012, days before The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits cinemas.
