Horror movie legend John Carpenter is of course not only an amazing director—but an atmospheric movie score composer as well. So the newly-announced Anthology: Movie Themes 1974 – 1998 album of Carpenter’s most amazing music is a fan’s dream come true.
It will be released on October 20th by Sacred Bones Records, the same label behind Carpenter’s 2015 Lost Themes album and its 2016 sequel. But whereas those records featured compositions that never made it to the big screen, Anthology: Movie Themes 1974 – 1998 is chock full of scores to the man’s most iconic films, such as Halloween, The Thing, They Live, and Escape From New York.
These scores will be reconstructed and newly-recorded with the help of Carpenter’s son, Cody, and godson, Daniel Davies. Carpenter will go on tour to help promote the album.
To satisfy collectors, Anthology: Movie Themes 1974 – 1998 will be released not only in CD, LP, and digital, but in a bunch of limited-edition vinyl formats. You can sample the first release from the album, from the film In The Mouth Of Madness, below:
