If you’re into this kind of thing and just in time for Halloween, John Carpenter is set to release Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, a collection of 13 of Carpenter’s classic movie themes newly recorded with the collaborators that worked on his Lost Themes albums, next Friday, October 20th via Sacred Bones. To celebrate the impending release, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have shared a new version of Carpenter’s iconic “Halloween” theme (appropriately landing on DSPs on Friday the 13th). Reznor adds: “I clearly remember my friends and I at 13 years old conning our parents into letting us see Halloween when it came out in 1978. We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the shit genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads. John Carpenter, it’s your fault that I turned out the way I did.”
Speaking about the new version, John Carpenter states, “Moody and dark, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ version of “HALLOWEEN” does amazing justice to the original. I’m impressed.”
More information about Reznor’s reworking of the track and more info about the record itself can be found at the Nine Inch Nails official site. Stream the audio below.
