The Hobbit Soundtrack Due Dec. 11

WaterTower Music has announced the release of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” at all retailers on Dec. 11. The soundtrack will be available both digitally and as a 2 CD set. A Special Edition of the soundtrack, featuring six exclusive bonus tracks, seven extended score cues, and deluxe liner notes will also be available Dec. 11.

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” features original score by Academy Award-winner Howard Shore recorded at famed Abbey Road studios by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Additionally, it includes an original song entitled “Song of the Lonely Mountain,” written and performed by Neil Finn (Crowded House).

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” the first of a trilogy of films from Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson (“The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy), will be released in the U.S. on Dec. 14, 2012.

Howard Shore previously worked with director Peter Jackson on “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy and his music from those films has been performed in concerts throughout the world. In 2003, Shore conducted the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in the world premiere of The Lord of the Rings Symphony in Wellington, New Zealand. Since then, the work has had more than 140 performances by the world’s most prestigious orchestras, and has even been the subject of a book, “The Music of The Lord of the Rings Films: A Comprehensive Account of Howard Shore’s Scores.”

“I have looked forward to returning to the imaginative world of Middle-earth for quite a while,” says Shore. “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 track listings for the 2 CD Standard and 2 CD Deluxe versions are as follows:
