Need some musical inspiration? Why be satisfied with a singe ode or ballad when you can listen to the whole score to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey right this second? Sit back and soak in these stirring songs straight from Middle-earth.
Howard Shore's lyrical score for the Lord Of The Rings trilogy was a vital component of the films' longevity and heart. His work for the new Hobbit movies is hotly anticipated, and last week we snuck you a soaring orchestral track called "Radagast The Brown."
Now you can dive into the whole sweeping score to prime you for the film's epic December release. Grab some high-end headphones and head over to Empire for the sonic experience and transport yourself into Shore's Tolkien-tinged soundscape.
Like it? You can buy the soundtrack in both regular and special editions on Dec. 11.
