Peter Hollens Completes LOTR End Credits with “Gollum’s Song”

Peter Hollens is on a roll! He continues to delight us by covering songs from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, and now, we have the full set of the end credit songs from LOTR. Below are his videos for “May It Be,” the song for The Fellowship of the Ring end titles, and “Gollum’s Song,” from The Two Towers.

If you had to choose, which would be your favorite?

May It Be featuring Taylor Davis

Gollum’s Song

His Middle-earth catalogue also includes two versions of “Into the West” from The Return of the Kingone with violinist Taylor Davis and one solo version. From The Hobbit movies, he has recorded “I See Fire” and “Misty Mountains.” Now that “Pippin’s Song” was used in both ROTK and the first teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, we’re not exactly sure how to classify it. But he’s done that one, too!

As he mentions in his “Gollum’s Song” video, pretty much the only thing he hasn’t done is “Song of the Lonely Mountain,” the end credit song from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey that was originally performed by Neil Finn. Want him to do it? Tell Peter on his YouTube channel, Facebook page, and Twitter!

Don’t forget to support him by purchasing his music on Loudr and iTunes.

  1. I so hoped they would use Pippin’s Song in the credits, but I almost knew they wouldn’t :(. I miss the LotR film days. I loved the LotR films far over the Hobbit. But that’s just my humble opinion 🙂

  2. Peter Hollens just released a CD with “I See Fire” on it. U2’s I Still Haven’t Found what I’m Looking for” rocks on it too.
