Ed Sheeran surprised fans this week by announcing that he recorded a song for the latest "Hobbit" movie, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." Called "I See Fire," the track made its debut on Tuesday, serving as Sheeran's first solo single in two years. "I got the chance to produce and play all the instruments on it apart from the cello. Managed to learn violin for a day, hope you all dig it," Sheeran wrote on Twitter, before adding, "Big up [to] Peter Jackson and his team for giving me the opportunity." Take a listen to "I See Fire" below and catch "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" in theaters on Dec. 13.
