(June 15, 2020—Los Angeles, CA)—Varèse Sarabande Records is
thrilled to announce the upcoming special release of The Running Man
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Deluxe Edition) by

The original (1987) 17-track soundtrack has been expanded to 35
tracks, which include additional music and unreleased and alternate

and a booklet with extensive liner notes by film music journalist
Daniel Schweiger.
Harold Faltermeyer on this special deluxe edition release: “Scoring

years, there is still a vivid interest. I was very delighted when I
heard that Varèse Sarabande would be releasing the entire score!”
