The soundtrack to the’80’s cult classic ‘Labyrinth’ is set to be reappear on vinyl for the first time since the album’s original release, way back in 1986. As well as stealing the show as villain Jareth, Bowie contributed five exclusive songs to the film’s soundtrack. Original vinyl copies of the album are surprisingly scarce given Bowie’s popularity and demand a fairly significant sum online – you’ll be lucky to find an original for less than £50 these days. As such, seeing the album back in print on the format after three decades is very welcome and comes as part of an ongoing surge of Bowie reissues that has recently seen albums such as ‘Station To Station’ and ‘Young Americans’ back in print after years.

In addition to Bowie’s contributions to the album, composer Trevor Jones‘ themes for the film are present and accounted for on the soundtrack. Although no official announcement of the soundtrack’s imminent reissue has yet been made, US record store Bullmoose listed the album for preorder earlier today, with details showing that the reissue hits shelves on 2nd May via Capitol Records.
