A few weeks ago we learned that Billy Boyd would be lending his vocal talents to Middle-earth once again. He sang as Pippin in The Return of the King, and he’ll be performing “The Last Goodbye” in the end credits of The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies. Unless Peter Jackson adapts The Silmarillion, this will be the last of his interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth stories to hit the big screen.
WaterTower Music (Warner Bros. music label) has posted a clip of the song, and I can already tell I’m going to need tissues. It’s haunting.
Listen to a minute and a half of “The Last Goodbye” after the break.
