Yesterday Peter Jackson and team unveiled Neil Finn’s song from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Today, Empire has the full soundtrack for your listening pleasure. Listen, enjoy and get a taste of what we’re in for come December 13 when the film hits screens. Note: this stream is working — we have confirmations from readers in both the USA and the UK. It does seem to be finnicky though, and we’re not sure why. We can only wish you the best of luck when you click to listen!

Assistance with getting the OST soundstream working

This requires a little bit of technical nous, but not too much.

These things usually run on plugins, so I figured it was either down to Adobe Flash … or Sun Java. I think it’s actually the former. So ensure your favourite browser has the latest and greatest version of Flash installed (it’s good security anyway!) and then restart your browser.

Some broswers — Mozilla Firefox for example — allow you to check your plug-in status through the Add-ons menu. You can check and update your Flash here on the Adobe website.

Wishing you all the best of luck. (OST sounds terrific btw!)
