Late last week we brought you half of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey soundtrack but was then asked to pull it down. Now, the entire score is available online for free — and legally.
Hit the play button in the widget below to begin listening. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’s complete soundtrack was first released by Empire Magazine earlier today. You cannot skip tracks and you must listen all the way through. However, the widget tells you which song you are on to help you keep track of your progress. The entire score is 1 hour, 45 minutes.
The score is composed by Howard Shore who also wrote all three films in The Lord of The Rings trilogy for director Peter Jackson. “I have looked forward to returning to the imaginative world of Middle-earth for quite a while,” says Shore of the score. “I read all of the books by Tolkien, including The Hobbit, when I was in my twenties, and his deep love of nature and all things green resonates deeply with me.”
The tracklisting is as follows:
My Dear Frodo
An Unexpected Party*
Axe or Sword?
Misty Mountains performed by Richard Armitage and The Dwarf Cast
