John Carpenter to release movie themes anthology
John Carpenter has re-recorded his movie themes for anthology release - listen to In The Mouth Of Madness
John Carpenter has re-recorded some of his movie themes for an album that’s to be released in October. Listen to his new take on In The Mouth Of Madness above.
Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 contains 13 tracks from across the revered director’s career, starting with his science fiction debut Dark Star and ending with his supernatural Western Vampires.
Record label Sacred Bones say: “John Carpenter is a legend. As the director and composer behind dozens of classic movies, he has established a reputation as one of the greatest filmmakers in the history of modern cinema, as well as one of its most influential musicians.
“The minimal, synthesizer-driven themes to films like Halloween, Escape From New York and Assault on Precinct 13 are as indelible as their images, and their timelessness was evident as Carpenter performed them live in a string of internationally sold-out concert dates in 2016.”
He once again worked with his son Cody and godson Daniel Davies on the album, which will be available in multiple formats including limited-edition coloured vinyl. Carpenter will commence a run of North American tour dates on October 29 – full list below.
