I See Fire ~ with guest soloist, Erin Upson
"I See Fire" is a song recorded and produced by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran. The song was commissioned for the soundtrack of the 2013 film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, where it played over the closing credits. The Hobbit director, Peter Jackson, asked Sheeran to write a song for the movie, after Jackson's daughter, Katie, suggested Sheeran. Sheeran saw the film, wrote the song, and recorded most of the track elements on the same day. Arranged by Michael Honey and first performed by The Vocal Agents: June 18th at the Caravan Music Club, Oakleigh, Melbourne.
