Trent Reznor Releasing Cover of John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’ on Friday the 13th!

A Friday the 13th in the middle of October is like having two Halloweens in the same month. It’s only 10am here in Chicago and we’re already being promised the final “Stranger Things” trailer, not to mention a teaser for Fox’s horror-themed X-Men spinoff, New Mutants.

The next big surprise was discovered over on Amazon, which lists tomorrow as the release date for a cover of John Carpenter‘s Halloween theme by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, the duo who make up Nine Inch Nails. There’s even a sample of the 8-minute long track that may or may not be included on Carpenter’s forthcoming greatest hits album due Oct. 20.

John Carpenter Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 brings together 13 classic themes from Carpenter’s illustrious career together on one volume for the first time. Each theme has been newly recorded with the same collaborators that Carpenter worked with on his hit Lost Themes studio albums: his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies.

It’s unclear if this cover is included as a bonus track of sorts since it’s not included on the tracklisting.

Nine Inch Nails’ new EP Add Violence is out now as well as his score for Ken Burns’ new docu-series, The Vietnam War.

      • James Allard

        I like… oh, you know… whichever one I have in the player at the time.

  • DukeStKing

    The original is so fucking great, I can’t take it. One wonders if the movie would have made such an impact without it.

  • If only all the Halloween films were as good as the first two (first three, if we count the largely unrelated Halloween III: Season of the Witch).

  • augster3

    Wow, did you guys really link the crappy Halloween store knock off of the Halloween theme?
