Bowie composed music for the film as well as playing the role of Jareth, The Goblin King. “I’d always wanted to be involved in the music-writing aspect of a movie that would appeal to children of all ages, as well as everyone else, and I must say that Jim [Henson] gave me a completely free hand with it, Bowie said in a 1986 interview with Movieline. “The script itself was terribly amusing without being vicious or spiteful or bloody, and it also had a lot more heart than many other special effects movies,” he continued. “So I was pretty well hooked from the beginning.”

This will be the first reissue since the record’s original 1986 release.
