The soundtrack for 1977 classic Saturday Night Fever, which starred John Travolta, is getting a 40th Anniversary Edition release on 17th November 2017.

The release will come in expanded formats including a super deluxe box set that pairs the remastered album and remixes with the film’s 4K-restored 40th Anniversary Director’s Cut.

The soundtrack was composed and primarily performed by the Bee Gees and featured iconic hits such as Stayin’ Alive, Night Fever, How Deep is Your Love, More Than a Woman and If I Can’t Have You. The album sold more than 15 million copies in the US alone and 40 million copies around the world.

The film’s director John Badham has worked with Paramount Pictures to restore it in 4K resolution using the original negative, and to update the film’s surround sound mix to further enhance viewers’ enjoyment of its incredible soundtrack. During the process he added scenes to the R-rated theatrical version that round out character and plot.

The Saturday Night Fever (The Original Movie Soundtrack) 40th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition box set features two CDs with the remastered original album and four Serban Ghenea remixes, the remastered album on heavyweight 180-gram 2-LP vinyl in a gatefold jacket with faithfully replicated original album art, and a Blu-ray disc with the film’s 4K-restored 40th Anniversary Director’s Cut and Theatrical Version, plus bonus features.

The collectible box set also includes a 23-page book with newly-written essays by Barry Gibb, Saturday Night Fever music supervisor and soundtrack producer Bill Oakes, director John Badham, and the film’s score composer and musician David Shire, as well as Bee Gees photos and stills from the film, plus an exclusive turntable slipmat, a set of five art prints, and a reproduction of the original Saturday Night Fever movie poster.

The soundtrack’s new 2-CD and digital 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition pairs the remastered album with the four new Serban Ghenea remixes.
