Oct 13 2017 by Francis Osborne
In the spirit of the season and the day, Nine Inch Nails'Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have released a cover version of John Carpenter's famous Halloween theme song. We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the sh*t genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads. As promised, Trent Reznor has unleashed his cover of John Carpenter's classic Halloween theme - a redo you can now stream in full. Carpenter's revolutionary use of analog synthesizers when scoring Halloween became a hallmark of horror movies to follow as well as influencing a new crop of musicians like Mike Patton, Symmetry, Desire and Chromatics, Cliff Martinez, and SURVIVE have taken elements of Carpenter's signature sound. Carpenter also recently confirmed he would handling the music for the upcoming Halloween reboot/sequel, due out in 2018.
The album is scheduled for release on 20 October and includes new versions of Carpenter staples such as "Assault On Precinct 13", "Escape From New York", "The Fog" and the HP Lovecraft-related "In The Mouth Of Madness". When asked about his involvement with the movie he says, "I am an executive producer and it looks clear to me that I've made a deal to do the music". I'll be consulting with the director to see what he feels. "I'll have to see the movie to see what it requires". One of the things that makes the original Halloween such an effective film is the score. The film will also reunite him with star Jamie Lee Curtis, who returns as Laurie Strode once again.
