Published May 02, 2014Thankfully vinyl isn't as precious a resource as the spice melange, for now at least, as it means that Dune fans can look forward to a rerelease of the sci-fi film's soundtrack coming their way later this year. This will apparently be the first vinyl release since Polydor originally issued it back in 1984.
A German Amazon listing [via Modern Vinyl] notes that a wax platter reissue is due through Music on Vinyl, with a press release for the set confirming it arrives overseas May 19. A North American release has not yet been announced.
Based on Frank Herbert's 1965 novel of the same name, director David Lynch's Dune featured a score prepped by rock band Toto, though without their vocalist, Bobby Kimball. The score paired the band with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and the Vienna Volksoper Choir, and it is Toto's only film score.
In addition to the Toto compositions, Brian Eno contributed the "Prophecy Theme," while snippets of dialogue are also present on the release.
If Alejandro Jodorowsky had his way, though, the soundtrack would have come courtesy of Pink Floyd and Magma.
