Teasing the prospective artwork with a quote from Bruce Willis’ Korben Dallas character via its Instagram account, Mondo will oversee the release and doubtless give it the full treatment, following extensively packaged reissues of the Fight Club and Gremlins soundtracks last year.
Written by Éric Serra, who is also responsible for the Goldeneye soundtrack, music in The Fifth Element appears in close to 90 per cent of what has been called an “intrinsically musical” film, moving between classical orchestration, reggae, fanfares, hula music and opera.
There is little more information about the soundtrack available at present, but you can check out what could well be the artwork below:
