Today, The Two Towers soundtrack is out in its definitive, complete recordings format.
The complete recordings series were initially released on CD (with a DVD-Audio disc in the set) from 2005 - 2007. However, at some point, the sets became discontinued. Earlier this year with The Fellowship of the Ring, the sets were re-issued on CD (with a blu-ray audio disc replacing the DVD-audio disc), and debuting on limited-edition numbered vinyls, and on various digital services, as well. While the vinyl sets are strictly limited and numbered, the CD+blu-ray audio set isn't limited, though they may sell out. Also, who knows when (or if) they may be discontinued again.....
Here are links to The Two Towers, however you may like to listen to it. Please note, you may have to change your 'country' or change the Amazon type (.CA, .CO.UK, etc.)

I will close by saying that The Return of the King may be on some of these digital platforms. This is because of the original sets from 2005 - 2007, it's the newest. I am unsure if it will be 'replaced' with a newer edition (same tracklist, etc as before) when The Return of the King vinyl and CD+blu-ray comes out in September, or if it will just stay the same. Either way, I'll provide links to that on the day the vinyl and CD sets are out.
The Return of the King is up for pr-order, as well:
- limited edition to 8000 numbered units on vinyl: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FW4H6F9/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I knew checking Amazon each and every single day would pay off!
Completing the trilogy of vinyl releases, here is The Return of the King. As of this writing, Amazon has The Two Towers still up for pre-order, so make sure you grab that if interested! The Return of the King is arriving on vinyl on September 21. (as of this writing).
Expect a CD+blu-ray audio set to arrive that same day - though at the moment it's not listed. However, while the CD set may be initially sold out, it's not 'limited edition' like these vinyls.
Finally, expect The Return of the King to arrive on all digital / streaming formats close that date, as well. But wait - it's already there (from the initial CD sets from 2005 - 2007). Not sure if they'll 'upgrade' the sound quality (it doesn't need it) or change the image slightly.
Either way, I'll keep you posted! The Two Towers, as a reminder, comes out in a few days. Maybe after this there will be The Hobbit soundtracks?
Here's the link for the vinyl set: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FW4H6F9/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
And for the CD+blu-ray set: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FW4CN99/?coliid=I1TENROHG8LYXX&colid=1VVT2K024WG3H&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
And, here's how the tracklist will play out across the sides on the LPs, which Amazon has listed as 'discs'.
