Batman score reissued on deluxe vinyl in new 30th anniversary edition



Sounds from Tim Burton’s iconic 1989 film return.

The original score for Tim Burton’s Batman is being reissued in two new versions to celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary, via Mondo this November.

Its music was composed by Danny Elfman, who also created the music for Burton’s Batman Returns in 1992 – which was reissued by Mondo last year.

Batman stars Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Jack Nicholson as Joker, and Kim Basinger as Vicki Vale.

The film followed Burton’s success on Beetlejuice, which also stared Michael Keaton in its titular role.

Batman will be available in two versions – a standard variant on black and purple 2xLP, and a deluxe expanded edition with one yellow/black “Batman” coloured LP and one purple/green “joker coloured” LP.

Check out the tracklists below.
