Billy Boyd, The Lord of the Ring’s Pippin, performs the ending credit song, The Last Goodbye, in the final episode of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit series – The Battle of Five Armies. Billboard.com reports. “We focused on not just the final installment, but more so on this 10-year epic adventure,” says Boyd. “A song to sum up the six movies. We recorded in Wellington, New Zealand, at one point traveling to Auckland to Neil Finn’s studio — where we recorded some of the guitar. It was surreal to be in his studio, as he did the song for [2012’s] The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” the Billboard article said. To hear the song, you’ll have to go to the Billboard article, which debuted it exclusively today.
