Soundtrack To David Bowie’s “The Man Who Fell To Earth” Film Set For Release After 40 Years
Just A Few More Months Of Waiting
The ‘lost’ master tapes containing the soundtrack to David Bowie’s 1976 sci-fi cult classic ‘The Man Who Fell To Earth’ has been rediscovered and will be reissued to mark the 40th anniversary since its release. The two-CD set will feature the film’s score written and composed by Stomu Yamash’ta and John Philips. Another inclusion will be ‘Blueberry Hill’ by Louis Armstrong and music from other artists like The Kingston Trio and The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra to name a few. However, Bowie has no contribution to the said soundtrack.
It will also coincide with the return of the movie to the UK theaters this September 9 which is the same release date for the CD. A deluxe boxed set (contains vinyl, CD, film poster reproduction, photos, new essay by Paolo Hewitt, notes from the film editor Graeme Clifford and a 48-page hardcover book) will be available on November 18.
This film is widely considered as one of Bowie’s finest pieces and we’re excited to get our hands on the soundtrack.
