Not sure how credible this Tumblr post is, but it looks like there might be an extended highlights Les Mis movie album coming out next month?

Les Mis Extended Highlights Album

An expanded, two-disc edition of the soundtrack to the film version of Les Miserables will be released next month.

The complete Motion Picture Soundtrack will have 22 more tracks than the Highlights edition currently available.

Available in both physical and digital formats, the full soundtrack will be available from Polydor from 18 March.

The Highlights edition, which has 20 tracks in all, currently tops the UK album chart and is the fastest-selling album in the UK this year.

"Post-production on the Les Miserables film was extremely tight, with recording of the orchestra, final edit and sound mix having to be completed in only a few weeks," said producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh.

"There was only enough time to remix a limited number of tracks so that at least a highlights album could be released for the fans before Christmas.

"We are delighted with the success of that album and very pleased that we can now add 22 more tracks."

The new record's release, he continued, meant "that audiences can now enjoy at home a full representation of the film's powerful and emotional version of this great score".

The new CD packaging will feature previously unseen photos from the film set as well as additional explanatory notes.

Directed by Tom Hooper, the film version of the long-running stage success stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne.

The box-office hit was honoured with four Bafta film awards on Sunday and will be up for eight Oscars at the Academy Awards on 24 February.

Not really a fan of the artwork... it looks forced... the beautiful image of the cast on the poster would've been much better.

Not a fan of the cover but in the end I can always change that by designing one myself for display on iTunes, iPad and iTouch.

Will the booklet be a 10 page spread all about how the singing was done live?

Yay! So glad I held out on this. I was hoping there would be a deluxe version of the soundtrack, so I passed on buying the Highlights CD.

I'm currently trying - and failing - to figure out where they're getting a 44-song track listing from.

My favorite stage show album is the 2010 LIVE U.K. Tour Cast Album, which has the full libretto but only has 40 songs, and I didn't think they'd cut 20+ songs from the film even if you add Suddenly to the 40 songs on the aforementioned U.K. Tour album.

Still sad that Sam Barks is not listed on the cover....
