SOUND AND VISION
The lost score of The Man Who Fell To Earth
For years there have been rumours about what Bowie did or didn’t record for The Man Who Fell To Earth soundtrack. In August 2016, his long-time producer Tony Visconti confirmed that Bowie did work on potential music for the film after the Station To Station sessions, at Cherokee Studios in Los Angeles, with the assistance of producer Harry Maslin. Whether what he recorded will ever be released is another matter. In the meantime, the 40th anniversary reissue of the film is accompanied, for the first time, by the release of John Phillips and Stomu Yamashta’s original score.
