There are few things we’re looking forward to more in 2015 than John Carpenter’s Lost Themes, his first solo album that will feature 15 brand new tracks that are sure to get your ears all kinds of turned on. And we’ve got a sneak peek for ya today, so read on!
John Carpenter has been responsible for much of the horror genre’s most striking soundtrack work in the fifteen movies he’s both directed and scored. The themes can instantly flood his fans’ musical memory with imagery of a menacing shape stalking a babysitter, a relentless wall of ghost-filled fog, or a mirror holding the gateway to hell. The all-new music on Lost Themes asks Carpenter’s acolytes to visualize their own nightmares.

“Lost Themes was all about having fun,” said Carpenter. “It can be both great and bad to score over images, which is what I’m used to. Here there were no pressures. No actors asking me what they’re supposed to do. No crew waiting. No cutting room to go to. No release pending. It’s just fun.”
The album is due out February 3rd from Sacred Bones Records, but you don’t have to wait to start listening. Check out the new track “Night” below!
