Finn named in Best Original Song shortlist

13th December 2012

Neil Finn’s contribution to the first film in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy has been named in the shortlist for Best Original Song at next year’s Academy Awards.

The song titled ‘Song Of The Lonely Mountain’ was penned by Finn and recorded with his two sons, Liam and Elroy. 

Rolling Stone describe it as an epic ballad with angelic vocals, swooning strings and a slow, determined build, capturing the feel of an arduous trek across a rocky, perilous landscape.

The songs that make the final cut will be announced at the Academy Awards nominations ceremony on January 10.
