Howard Shore, who composed the score for all three Lord of the Rings films, returns for Peter Jackson's new trilogy.
The soundtrack will be released on December 11, in a 2-disc set available in either standard or special edition, and features an original score recorded by Shore and the London Philharmonic Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios.
"I have looked forward to returning to the imaginative world of Middle-earth for quite a while," Shore said of his return.
"I read all of the books by Tolkien, including The Hobbit, when I was in my 20s, and his deep love of nature and all things green resonates deeply with me."
