The catch? You cannot choose or skip the tracks you want to listen and must go through it in its entirety. Trying to will send you back to the beginning. Only thing you get is a pause button. Music widget is in the link.
Yesterday Peter Jackson and team unveiled Neil Finn's song from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Today, we have the full soundtrack for your listening pleasure, and it's embedded below. Listen, enjoy and get a taste of what we're in for come December 13 when the film hits screens.

Howard Shore is the composer here, building on his own work from The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. You'll hear very specific echoes of elements from that work throughout the whole album, giving this a clear link to our first adventures in Middle-earth, but there are new themes here for the new characters too.

Unfortunately, because of copyright concerns, this widget doesn't allow you to skip from track to track, but you can listen to the full thing here, which we think is worth that slight inconvenience.

This soundtrack will be available to buy on December 10 in a regular and deluxe edition from all good retailers both physical and digital, and you can pre-order it at the link above. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey of course hits cinemas on December 13, and you can read all about it in the current issue of Empire, either in all good newsagents or on the iPad edition or US iPad edition.

I was about 90% or more through when I paused it and then lost my place when I started it again. Oh well.

I wonder if they realize that putting it out in this gimped form will actually encourage people to pirate it?

Looks like someone already has a link to a pirated form in the comments. What the logic of placing this online was in a manner calculated to annoy people as noted, I dunno.

I just listened to it on YouTube. Neat stuff. It's obviously quite familiar but new in its own way.
