The first installment in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will open in theaters on December 14 and the soundtrack for the film will drop a few days earlier on December 11. We posted the track listing and cover art for you last week and now we've got a taste at one of the tracks, "Radagast the Brown," for you below.

The original soundtrack, composed, orchestrated, and conducted by Howard Shore will be available as a two CD set in both regular and Special Editions. It will also include an original song entitled "Song of the Lonely Mountain," written and performed by Neil Finn (Crowded House).

You can preorder your copy of the soundtrack by clicking here.

The film follows the titular hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever... Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's "precious" ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis and many, many more star in the December 14 release.
