To tide you over until the reboot drops.

Death Waltz has announced the vinyl reissue of the Fire Walk With Me soundtrack – the prequel to Twin Peaks that landed two years after the original series in 1992 (to mixed reviews).

Originally slated for a 2016 release, a tweet from the legendary soundtrack label – that includes a quote from Twin Peaks’ character Donna Hayward (“If I had a nickel for every cigarette your mom smoked, I’d be dead,”) – has now teased a January release.

Composed by long-time David Lynch collaborator Angelo Badalamenti, the Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me soundtrack includes vocal contributions from jazz singer Jimmy Scott and dream-pop artist Julee Cruise, who also performs in the series. As The Vinyl Factory reports, the Death Waltz edition will feature liner notes from film critic Mark Kermode.

Twin Peaks will return to our screens some time in early 2016 and we already know that original series composer Angelo Badalamenti is behind the new soundtrack.

New York-born Badalamenti won a Grammy in 1990 for the eerie theme tune, which was given the long-awaited vinyl reissue treatment by Death Waltz in August. Read our essential guide to Badalamenti‘s work.
