To celebrate 20 years of Lord of The Rings Fellowship of The Rings Enya is releasing a picture disc 12’’ of Grammy-nominated song May It Be. The track was composed and performed by Enya for the film in 2001.
The Lord of the Rings film trilogy is among the most successful in cinematic history. Based on the popular J.R.R. Tolkien novel of the same name, these award-winning movies were directed by Peter Jackson and scored by composer Howard Shore. The epic story of Middle-earth arrived in theaters 20 years ago, in December 2001, when The Fellowship Of The Ring made its highly anticipated debut.

To celebrate that milestone, Rhino is releasing a 12” picture disc that includes May It Be, the critically acclaimed single Enya recorded for the film’s soundtrack. In 2002, that song was released on a CD single with two more Enya songs: Isobella and The First of Autumn. Those tracks will make their vinyl debut on May It Be to be released on December 3rd.
