Neil Finn of ‘Crowded House’ provides the end title song for An Unexpected Journey

October 8, 2012 at 6:02 pm by greendragon  - 

According to Peter Green, at this website, a song by New Zealand musician Neil Finn will be used during the end credits of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  Finn has recorded extensively, as a solo artist and also with bands such as Split Enz and Pajama Club; he is perhaps best known as lead singer and guitarist with Crowded House.  We don’t yet know anything more about this song, but will update as soon as we do!  Given that all three end credit songs for the Lord of the Rings movies were performed by women, it will be exciting to hear a male voice at the end of the first Hobbit movie.  The soundtracks for Fellowship of the Ring and Return of the King were released at the end of November in their respective years, but the Two Towers soundtrack didn’t come out until 10th December 2002; let’s hope we get an end of November release date for the Unexpected Journey soundtrack!

Thanks to Peter and to ringer spy Dennis for the heads up!

    And he was in the Flight of the Conchords radio series being annoyed by Rhys Darby in every episode. “New Zealand’s Bob Dylan of wistful pop…”

    Neil Finn is one of the best songwriters around, and he has a wonderful voice, AND he happens to be a Kiwi. So while this is not surprising, it is delightful news! I can’t wait to hear what he’s come up with.

    I don’t think the boy (Edward Ross) who sung at the end of Fellowship would appreciate being called a woman.

    Amazon has it and a deluxe version set to hit Dec. 11th.

    May It Be was also sung at the end by Enya, who IS a woman.
