Neil Finn is the pen behind the Song of the Lonely Mountain that you heard in the first trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. You know, the trailer we got last December and watched over and over again? I can’t believe it’s almost been a year.
We heard the dwarfs sing it in the teaser, but now you can hear Neil Finn perform the entire piece as part of a preview from Rolling Stone. It’s folksy and very much fits in with Middle Earth; it will play during the end credits.
Truth be told, I like the dwarfs’ version better. I hope they recorded the full song and not just the snippet we hear in the trailer—which you can check out after the break.
