Listen To The Complete Soundtrack From The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey image
Shortly after teasing one track from the score of Peter Jackson’s upcoming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey -- namely Neil Finn’s song that’s set to play over the film’s end credits -- the entire score now sits online, starting with "My Dear Frodo," penned by Howard Shore.

The score is housed over at Empire, and you can also listen to it embedded below. Unfortunately, due to copyright claims, the widget that they are using only allows you to listen to the score in its entirety from start to finish. You cannot skip from track to track, and any attempt to skip or rewind the musical selection will restart you to the beginning of the score. However, it’s a relatively small price to pay to be able to listen to Shore’s original compositions early, and Lord of the Rings fans likely won’t mind a bit.



Those very same fans also will notice audio cues that Shore lifts from his work on Jackson’s original, Oscar-winning trilogy on display in the Hobbit score. The music grown ominous almost immediately, suggesting a dire tonal shift in Jackson’s storytelling. Then again, we’re merely speculating until we’re able to see Jackson’s first installment in the three-part Hobbit (or, at least, hold a copy of the Hobbit soundtrack in our hands).

Speaking of, the full score will be available to own on Dec. 11, and can be pre-ordered in Regular or Special Edition here. An Unexpected Journey kicks off Jackson’s second Tolkien trilogy on Dec. 14. Are you ready?
