40 years ago, David Bowie starred in the sci-fi cult classic The Man Who Fell to Earth, which birthed one of his greatest personas: The Thin White Duke. In commemoration of its upcoming anniversary, the film will return to UK theaters on September 9th. That same day, the film’s soundtrack will be released commercially for the very first time.

Bowie originally intended to handle the soundtrack himself, but director Nic Roeg ultimately decided to go in a different direction. Instead, the music was coordinated by The Mamas & the Papas’ John Phillips, with contributions from Japanese percussionist-composer Stomu Yamash’ta and former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor. Several of the songs Bowie wrote for The Man Who Fell to Earth — including “Subterraneans” — ended up on his 1977 album, Low.

“Due to the recent discovery of lost master tapes,” Universal will finally issue The Man Who Fell to Earth soundtrack as a two-disc CD/LP set on September 9th. A deluxe box set, out November 18th, adds on a 48-page hardcover book that tells the story of why the soundtrack never came out, in addition to a new essay about the film by Paolo Hewitt, and notes from the film’s editor Graeme Clifford.
