    Do we know if he’s going to bring in some of his old leitmotifs from LotR? I’m assuming the Shire theme will probably get treatment.

      Maybe Beorn’s house?? Plus the chapter before they go into Beorns house is called “out of the frying-pan into the fire”, and thats one of the last track names, kinda.

    I’m really curious about that Neil Finn song. Does anyone know any songs by that artist that I should check out?

    I would love to have the extended soundtrack, but I like the cover art of the standard edition better. Hopefully, it’s a reversible cover like the LotR soundtracks were.
