Beginning tomorrow (or in just under 30 minutes, for those of you on the
East Coast in the U.S.), you will be able to purchase Howard Shore’s Original Score for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on CD, either in Regular or Special Edition form. But for those of you who just can’t wait
to get your hands on the music, both albums are now available on iTunes (in the U.S., at least).
To purchase the physical CD versions, you can visit Amazon.com at the following links:
For those of you who lack patience, but are also collectors (like yours truly), you should know that Amazon.com will allow you to download a digital version of the album if you purchase the soundtrack from them. After you purchase, the download will be available on release day (which, again, for you East Coasters, will be less than 30 minutes from now).
