The Space Jam Soundtrack Is Getting Reissued On Vinyl For The First Time In 20 Years

Space Jam, the popular 1996 film that featured basketball icon Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes, is having its very own soundtrack reissued on vinyl.

The vinyl will be sold by Atlantic as a two-disc record and will be a special release for Record Store Day. The album featured tracks such as R. Kelly‘s “I Believe I Can Fly”; Seal‘s “Fly Like An Eagle”; and, of course, Barry White and Chris Rock‘s “Basketball Jones” cover.

In other related news, a Space Jam 2 is in the works. According to a story that The Hollywood Reporter wrote last year, Fast & The Furious director Justin Lin would serve as the film’s director, while Lin and writer Andrew Dodge would write the script for the movie. And as for the basketball player that would be taking Jordan’s place and making the starring role their own? Well, that role belongs to Lebron James.

However, following that news, Jordan declared who he would rather see take up his role while making a summer camp appearance — Blake Griffin.

In 2015, Griffin had already voiced his desire to be a part of a Space Jam sequel, saying: “If you told me when I was 8 years old that I could possibly have a chance to be in Space Jam 2, it would have blown my mind. That would just be like another check off the bucket list.”

Well, until that sequel sees the light of day, at least fans can bump the Space Jam vinyl, which drops on April 22. Check out the track list below.
