Neil Finn's 'Song of the Lonely Mountain' Hits Web

Neil Finn's 'Song of the Lonely Mountain,' which will play during the end credits of The Hobbit film, has now been released online.

"'The Song of the Lonely Mountain' was developed from a dark and mysterious theme which the dwarves sing early in the movie," Finn told Rolling Stone magazine. "After some days of mining underground (actually, in Peter's office) I emerged with the song, then set about recording it with my sons Elroy and Liam. Dave Fridmann came in at the end with a bold mix. He seemed to respond well to my demands for "more anvil! Pop music needs more anvil!"

You can listen to the full track here.

  1. Everything could use more anvil!

    And I misread his son's name as Elrond at first.
