I See Fire free piano sheet music by Ed Sheeran
About the song
"I See Fire" is a song which was especially written for the movie "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug" by Ed Sheeran.
The singer was discovered by Peter Jackson, in 2013 while he was looking for an artist to compose the ending credit for the movie.
A fan of Tolkien and Peter Jackson, Sheeran decided to write, compose and produce the song. After reading the book and watching the movie at Park Road Post, the singer started to write the lyrics and record the instrumentation. As a first for the artist, he played the piano by himself through overdubbing.
Ed Sheeran commented that
"I got the chance to produce and play all the instruments on it apart from the cello and I managed to learn the violin for a day". Later on, during the production, cello parts were added by Nigel Collins while Pete Cobbin mixed it at Park Road Studios."
The folk song has a relatively long duration, of five minutes and it's part of the WaterTower Music label as well as of the Decca Records label.
"I See Fire" consists in Ed Sheeran being responsible for the vocals, percussion, guitar, mixing and violin, Nigel Collins for the cello, Kirsty Whalley and Pete Cobbin for the mixing and Miles Showell for mastering it.
The single was released on November 5th, 2013 and it's part of the album "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of The Smaug".
The song, which appears at the ending credits of the movie, was released on the album format only on December 10th, 2013.
"I See Fire" was a breakthrough for Sheeran as it brought him international fame and recognition. It appeared in 19 different charts.
