Sheeri-o’s rejoice because Ed Sheeran released a new song today.
The song, which is named “I See Fire” will be featured on the soundtrack of the upcoming Hobbit film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The new track will not be featured during the actual film, but it will play during the end credits.
“Okay, my new song for the Hobbit movie is up on iTunes everywhere now, finally. Il get the link for ya,” the 22-year-old singer tweeted earlier. He also revealed on Twitter, that he in fact played all the instruments on the song with the exception of the tricky cello.
This past weekend, the singer made headlines again when he performed at not one, not two, but three sold out shows at New York’s Madison Square Gardens where he received a little of a surprise from one of his closest friends and fellow tourmate, Taylor Swift, when the pop star stopped by to perform with him.
As for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, a new trailer premiered yesterday into the hands of many eager Lord of the Rings fans. The film is not set to be released until December 13 with the soundtrack coming out a few days before on December 10.
Listen to the new track below which by the way can now be in the running for “Best Original Song” for the Academy Awards.
