Labyrinth is a soundtrack album by British musician David Bowie and South African musical score composer Trevor Jones, originally released in June 1986 via EMI Records.

David Bowie was approached to take part in the Labyrinth film in 1983 whilst he was on his Serious Moonlight Tour. He had seen the early designs for the movie and a video of The Dark Crystal. Bowie had wanted to make music for a children's film and saw this as his chance to realise another lifelong ambition.

David Bowie recorded five songs for the film: "Underground", "Magic Dance", "Chilly Down", "As the World Falls Down", and "Within You". The song "Underground" features on the soundtrack twice, first in an edited version that was played over the film's opening sequence and secondly in full. "Underground" was released in various territories as a single, and in certain markets was also released in an instrumental version and an extended dance mix. "Magic Dance" was released as a 12" single in the U.S.

"As the World Falls Down" was initially slated for release as a follow-up single to "Underground", but this plan did not materialize.

The only song Bowie did not perform lead vocal on is "Chilly Down", which was performed by Charles Augins, Richard Bodkin, Kevin Clash, and Danny John-Jules, the actors who voiced the 'Fire Gang' creatures in the film.

Steve Barron produced promotional music videos for "Underground" and "As the World Falls Down". The music video for "Underground" features Bowie as a nightclub singer who stumbles upon the world of the Labyrinth, encountering many of the creatures seen in the film. The clip for "As the World Falls Down" integrates clips from the film, using them alongside black-and-white shots of Bowie performing the song in an elegant room.
