(hennemusic) The soundtrack to David Bowie's 1976 film, "The Man Who Fell To Earth", will see its release for the first time in sync with the project's 4K restoration and return to UK cinemas next month as part of its 40th anniversary.

Due September 9, the package features exclusive music from John Phillips of The Mamas & The Papas and Japanese prog-fusionist Stomu Yamashta without a contribution from Bowie himself, who stepped aside from participating at the time due to contractual issues.

The 2CD set comes with a 48-page hardback book with rare photos and a new essay about the film from Paolo Hewitt. The book also contains notes from the movie's editor, Graeme Clifford, who reveals that he used Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon" as a temporary soundtrack whilst working on the film.

A deluxe 2CD/2LP box will be issued on November 18 that adds a reproduction of the original UK poster for the film, which was based on Walter Tevis' 1963 novel of the same name about an extraterrestrial who crash lands on Earth seeking a way to ship water to his planet, which is suffering from a severe drought.
