Listen To The First Track From The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Soundtrack

Last week we gave you the official tracklisting for Peter Jackson‘s upcoming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Now, Tolkien fans (or perhaps we should say Howard Shore fans, because that’s probably never been said), can actually listen to an exclusive slice of the sure-to-be-brilliant soundtrack before it’s even released. Woo!

Titled “Radagast the Brown”, it’s 4 minutes and 52 seconds of both beauty and malevolence. We’re describing it as “choral, earthly and tense”, which we hope will become the official description someday.

It’s composed by maestro genius Howard Shore, of course, who promises to deliver the same quality of score that helped make the original Lord of the Rings films so special.

Here it is, people:

For those who are yet to see the official soundtrack listing, here it is once again:
