Pre-Order John Carpenter's Soundtrack for 'Halloween' Sequel; Listen to First Tease

The awesome folks over at Sacred Bones Records just added John Carpenter‘s newly composed score for David Gordon Green’s Halloween sequel up for pre-order on their website. You can choose from a Limited Art Edition Vinyl LP, Limited Orange Vinyl LP, Standard Black Vinyl LP or a Jewel Case CD.

You can take a look at the incredibly cool packing artwork below, along with a first tease of the Halloween 2018 soundtrack.

***Limited Edition Version: Edition of 2000 “art edition” copies, housed in deluxe die cut packaging with exclusive alternate artwork and poster by Chris Bilheimer, pressed on clear vinyl with “Orange Pumpkin” inset, and available by mail-order only. ONE PER PERSON LIMIT.***

When the new Halloween movie hits theaters in October 2018, it will have the distinction of being the first film in the canon with creator John Carpenter’s direct involvement since 1982’s Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Carpenter serves on the new David Gordon Green-directed installment as an executive producer, a creative consultant, and, thrillingly, as a soundtrack composer, alongside his collaborators from his three recent solo albums, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies.

The new soundtrack pays homage to the classic Halloween score that Carpenter composed and recorded in 1978, when he forever changed the course of horror cinema and synthesizer music with his low-budget masterpiece. Several new versions of the iconic main theme serve as the pulse of Green’s film, its familiar 5/4 refrain stabbing through the soundtrack like the Shape’s knife. The rest of the soundtrack is just as enthralling, incorporating everything from atmospheric synth whooshes to eerie piano-driven pieces to skittering electronic percussion. While the new score was made with a few more resources than Carpenter’s famously shoestring original, its musical spirit was preserved.

Both the CD and Vinyl soundtrack is available on October 19.
