Columbia/Legacy has set a Feb. 7 release date for an expanded edition of the soundtrack to the film "Dead Man Walking," first issued in 1996. The new edition features a previously unreleased studio version of "Dead Man" recorded last year by Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder; the song was written for the original soundtrack but wound up instead as the B-side to the Pearl Jam single "Off He Goes."

"Dead Man Walking" features contributions from Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, Patti Smith and Vedder with Pakistani vocalist Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, among others. It will be bolstered with a DVD taped at Not in Our Name: Dead Man Walking -- The Concert, which was held March 29, 1998, at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium.

That show was highlighted by performances from Vedder and Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, Ani DiFranco, Lyle Lovett, Waits and Earle. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan had passed away between the release of the soundtrack and the concert, so his vocal parts on "The Long Road" and "The Face of Love" were sung live by his nephew, Rahat.

Susan Sarandon won the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of Sister Helen Prejean in "Dead Man Walking," on which her book of the same name was based. Springsteen's title track was nominated for best original song.
