Listen to Howard Shore's 'Radagast' Track from 'The Hobbit' Score
We're getting closer and closer every day! Tickets are going on sale this week. As a massive fan of Howard Shore's original Lord of the Rings soundtracks (I still listen to them often nowadays), I practically jumped when I first saw a headline revealing that a full song from The Hobbit was out and about. The track, titled "Radagast the Brown" referring to the animal-loving wizard character played by Sylvester McCoy (seen above/in the trailer) has appeared in its entirety on tumblr blogs around the web. It's one of our first listens to a finished piece of the score from Howard Shore, and it's as wonderful as his LOTR work. The angelic children's choir, the playfulness, the melody, it's going to be a wonderful return to Middle Earth once again.
You can already pre-order a Special Edition of The Hobbit soundtrack/score by Howard Shore on Amazon.
In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit... J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 14th.
