Soundtrack for 1986 film to return to vinyl

David Bowie and Trevor Jones' soundtrack for 1986 film Labyrinth is to be reissued on vinyl.

As The Vinyl Factory reports, Labyrinth was one of three soundtrack works that Bowie created in his career, between West Berlin film Christiane F. and television series The Buddha Of Suburbia.

The original pressing of the soundtrack, which was also made available on cassette, has passed hands for three-figure sums on the resale market, so this reissue will give Bowie fans a chance to own the soundtrack at a considerably more affordable price. The reissue will be available from May 2 and you can check out part of the soundtrack above.
