Horror master John Carpenter unveils 'Night' from Lost Themes

The twisted mind behind Halloween gives us another taste of his new album.

John Carpenter has shared ‘Night’ from his new solo album Lost Themes, which sees the horror director and composer embarking on a musical project with no film in mind. “It can be both great and bad to score over images, which is what I’m used to,” he said in a statement. “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.”

Stream ‘Night’ below and visit the mini-site that pairs it with clips from his films.

Lost Themes arrives on February 3 via Sacred Bones, accompanied by a deluxe edition featuring six remixes from Zola Jesus and Dean Hurley, ohGr (of Skinny Puppy), techno producer Silent Servant, Fuck Buttons offshoot Blanck Mass, composer JG Thirwell and PAN boss Bill Kouligas.

On February 5, Carpenter will be in conversation with Brooke Gladstone at Brooklyn Academy of Music – grab tickets here.
