Here’s a link to Amazon and the soundtrack ( including, of course, that hauntingly beautiful Misty Mountains song with RA and the fellow dwarves). The soundtrack is now available for pre-order with the release expected on December 11. There is both a special edition and a regular edition available. The deluxe edition includes Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore‘s score for the film, along with seven extended score cues, six bonus tracks and deluxe liner notes in a 2 CD hardbound digibook. The score was recorded at the legendary Abbey Roads Studios with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Why do I have a feeling there will be an awful lot of Hobbiting going on between now and mid-December . . . with the jingle of cash registers ringing merrily as the juggernaut continues?
