Full score for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey online

We’re mere weeks away from the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (December 13th in the UK, 14th in the US) and to build the hype Warner Bros. has provided Empire with the full score by Howard Shore.

Having listened to the soundtrack in full it’s very nice to hear themes from The Lord of the Rings being used (The Shire, Rivendell, and Gollum), but there’s enough fresh material in there to ensure The Hobbit can stand on its own musically. I can’t wait to see how the music evolves throughout the new trilogy.
