Listen to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey full soundtrack Although it isn't officially released in stores until December 11, fans can listen to the entire soundtrack to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey for free, courtesy of Rolling Stone. All 23 tracks are available, including Neil Finn's "Song of the Lonely Mountain." CLICK HERE to listen to the soundtrack, then read on for more information about this score.

Neil Finn, the lead singer of Crowded House, revealed he was thinking about the dwarves in director Peter Jackson's adventure when he was crafting the song.

"They talked a lot about how the movie really, in many ways, is a tale of the dwarfs, as much as it's called The Hobbit. I'd get a little melody and I'd think, 'Would a dwarf sing that?' And you go, 'No, it's too floral. It's not earthy enough.' Even though there's aspects of brotherhood and kinship in the song, I had a line about love and Peter and Fran [Walsh, co-writer and co-producer] sort of looked at me and said, 'No, not love. There's something not quite right about that.' It's not a love song."

The singer also revealed the soundtrack was completed just under two weeks ago.

""They were working on the soundtrack up to about 10 days ago. There's a huge amount of cues. Something would be working not quite right; they'd have to go back and re-record. There'd be notes made. I wasn't aware of the detail, of the minutiae. But I know that there is an obsessive nature that goes along with making these kinds of things, and everyone's aiming to get it to a point where it sounds like it was the easiest thing in the world."

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was released December 14th, 2012.

    I just listened to all of them and I've gotta say that "Song Of The Lonely Mountain" is my most favorite overall. Such a VERY powerful song and it left me in tears completely. I'm sure that song will be played during the end credits and that would make the movie even MORE awesome in my book! :-D

                  This is really some great music. I can't wait to hear these tracks in the theater. My personal favorite is number five, "The Misty Mountains".
