DoS-Trailer song featured in movie? Can't Post

Hey guys I rewatched the DOS trailer today and after that I looked for the track featured in it. It is called "Age of Dragons" and is composed by audiomachine exclusively for this trailer. I think that was mentioned before at some point.

They produce music for motion picture advertising/trailers and their work was also featured in the second AUJ-trailer. I have to note that those tracks already existed while "Age of Dragons" is completely new. They official announced:

Audiomachine is thrilled to announce that we were selected to create a special composition for the new teaser for 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'

So why did Peter/Warner asked THEM to produce a new track EXCLUSIVELY for this trailer?
They could have used any other track by audiomachine or other trailer music composers, they could have used AUJ bits or LOTR ones. Why asking them? Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed this track and that's why I could imagine that it will be featured in the movie at some point. It sounds a little like Howard Shore and it would fit wouldn't it? There is a returning leitmotif in it with different variations. It is possible.

Would you like to hear a Howard Shore adaptation of "Age of Dragons" by audiomachine in DOS as he did with "Misty Mountains Cold" by Plan 9 in AUJ?

"There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power."
