Music Video For DoS End Credits Song “I See Fire” By Ed Sheeran

November 5, 2013 at 8:34 pm by Earl  - 

Ed SheeranPeter Jackson has written a lengthy post on his Facebook concerning Ed Sheeran’s end credits song for The Desolation Of Smaug, “I See Fire”, and the music video for it. A few excerpts follow:

“We have a tradition in our Tolkien films of having a song over the closing credits. It’s very important that the song feels right for the world of the movie – and also carries the emotional resonance of the end of that particular film. The Desolation of Smaug is no different. The ending of this film requires a voice and sensibility that will allow an viewer to process what they have just experienced.

Ed watched the movie at Park Road Post, immediately went into a room, and started writing and singing. Much of what you will hear on this song was recorded that same day, with a few overdubs and tweaks the following day. It was a great experience, and what you will see in this video are moments captured by our behind the scenes team during the creation of the song.

But the images are only supporting Ed’s wonderful song. This is his direct emotional response to seeing The Desolation of Smaug, written and performed on the same day he saw the movie.”

You can read PJ’s entire post and watch the video over at his Facebook. Or you can catch just the video on good ol’ YouTube.

The song features on the OST for The Desolation of Smaug, to be released on December 10, and is available for purchase on iTunes as of today.
