"I See Fire" Performed by Ed Sheeran

From "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug"

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, WaterTower Music

"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.

The song was released as a digital download on 5 November 2013; its music video was released the same day. It entered the UK Singles Chart at number 13 and reached number-one in New Zealand on its sixth week, marking Sheeran's first number-one single in the country. "I See Fire" was nominated for a Satellite Award for Best Original Song.

"I See Fire" was released on 5 November 2013 through iTunes, initially in the United States and then worldwide within the next 36 hours. It was later released on 10 December 2013 as part of the film's soundtrack, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, through WaterTower Music and Decca Records. Sheeran released "I See Fire" while on tour in support of his debut album; it was the first solo record that he released, two years since his last. Initially, the track was announced as a non-inclusion in his next album, subsequently titled x. However, it appeared on the deluxe edition of that album. Sheeran announced the inclusion on 9 April 2014.

The official music video for "I See Fire" premiered on 5 November 2013, along with the release of the song. The video shows Sheeran performing and recording the vocals, the songwriting and recording of live instruments, behind the scenes, all throughout interspersed with shots from the film. The footage which shows Sheeran performing and recording the song is shot in black-and-white, while the rest shown in full color. The video, which is uploaded in the Warner Bros. Pictures channel in YouTube, had accumulated over 80 million views as of April 2017.
