Trevor Jones and David Bowie’s soundtrack for baby-snatching cult film Labyrinth is receiving a vinyl reissue, but not as soon as expected. The vinyl reissue comes on 12th May from Capitol, with artwork and EMI America branding replicated from the original release. The official release announcement comes after an earlier listing that was first leaked to fans about the news in February.
To help the younger ones who do not understand, Labyrinth is a 1986 movie, supposedly for children, directed by Muppets creator Jim Henson and starring a 15-year-old Jennifer Connelly opposite David Bowie in a mullet. The soundtrack consists of seven instrumental pieces by film composer Trevor Jones and five original songs by Bowie, notably “As the World Falls Down,” “Underground,” and “Magic Dance,” an iconic piece of film history which is advisable not to try watching right now.
