With the increasing popularity of The X-Files as a tv-show, more merchandising products became available. So it was only a matter of time, until finally a CD with the score by Mark Snow would be released. In March 1996, The X-Files theme was released as an EP and became a huge success in Europe, even reaching Number 1 in the French single charts. In September of that same year, the album X-Files: The Truth and the Light followed. The Truth is out there!
