Music video for ‘The Last Goodbye’

Nov 22 • by Ursa • No Commentsthe Hobbit

Billy Boyd, who portrayed loyal hobbit Pippin in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, collaborated with Jackson, Fran Walsh, and Philippa Boyens to write “The Last Goodbye,” the song that will play over the credits when The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opens on December 17.

The official music video includes Boyd’s performance, mixed with scenes from Lord of the Rings and Hobbit, and lovely behind-the-scenes footage. Take a look.

Boyd told EW: “After seeing the film, I went to my room and I started to put down some ideas, and along with Fran and Philippa, we started to sculpt the song we thought the movie needed,” he says. “A lot of ideas took us to dead ends or we found the tone wasn’t just right. I think we discovered very quickly this wasn’t just a song to end The Battle of the Five Armies—it was a song to say goodbye to Middle-earth.”

The soundtrack for the final Hobbit film arrives on December 9, and can already be pre-ordered from iTunes and Amazon.
