Sacred Bones is set to release the soundtrack for the new David Gordon Green-directed Halloween film this Friday, featuring an all-new score composed and performed by John Carpenter alongside his collaborators from his three recent solo albums, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies (listen to it here).
To celebrate the impending release, the label has announced an impending physical edition of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross‘s 2017 version of the iconic Halloween theme. Upon its digital release last year Reznor stated:
“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,” Reznor stated.
“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 Reznor/Ross version, John Carpenter stated, “Moody and dark, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ version of Halloween does amazing justice to the original.”
The Limited Edition 12″ features Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s version of John Carpenter’s Halloween theme on one side, and Carpenter’s 2017 Anthology version of the theme on the other. Available on orange vinyl, and black vinyl.
