Legendary horror director and composer John Carpenter has announced the upcoming release of the soundtrack to Halloween Kills. On October 15, the soundtrack—made in collaboration with his son Cody Carpenter and composer Daniel Davies—will be released on Sacred Bones Records, the same day that the latest film in the Halloween franchise will be released. The trio have shared the first piece of music from the soundtrack, titled “Unkillable,” which you can hear below.
A press release says of the album, “The music is unmistakably Carpenter: the sinister vintage synth tones, the breath-stealing sense of menace that he conjures with just a few dissonant notes. But with a broader sonic palette, new digital techniques at his disposal, and a deeper sense of musicality, the Halloween Kills score is the work of a master artist who nearly 50 years into his career continues to push his creative limits and find new ways to thrill and terrify his fans.”
Earlier this year, Carpenter released Lost Themes III.
