The actor who plays Pippin sings a tune for 'The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies.'
Peter Jackson’s latest big-screen trilogy based on a J.R.R. Tolkien classic concludes next month with the epic The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, and Lord of the Rings actor Billy Boyd’s voice will be the one guiding audiences home with his new song, “The Last Goodbye.” Listen to the track, which will play over the upcoming film’s end credits, premiering exclusively on Billboard.com:
After discussing penning a song for the new movie, Boyd -- who plays Pippin in the Lord of the Rings trilogy -- flew to New Zealand in September to watch an early cut of the film. The Scottish actor/musician realized that he wanted to put an exclamation point on Howard Shore’s score, and encapsulate the entirety of Jackson’s six-part screen journey.
