Last week, a fake song from Halloween spread like fire online. Today, we have the first real taste of the soundtrack.
Not only is John Carpenter, creator of the franchise, executive producing Blumhouse’s new Halloween, he also composed the soundtrack, along with his son Cody, and Daniel Davies (Lost Themes).
Sacred Bones Records has now released a short teaser of the main theme, giving fans a taste of what’s to come.
Sacred Bones Records describes the new soundtrack:
The new soundtrack pays homage to the classic Halloween score that Carpenter composed and recorded in 1978 when he forever changed the course of horror cinema and synthesizer music with his low-budget masterpiece. Several new versions of the iconic main theme serve as the pulse of Green’s film, its familiar 5/4 refrain stabbing through the soundtrack like the Shape’s knife. The rest of the soundtrack is just as enthralling, incorporating everything from atmospheric synth whooshes to eerie piano-driven pieces to skittering electronic percussion. While the new score was made with a few more resources than Carpenter’s famously shoestring original, its musical spirit was preserved.
 


 
Pre-order the soundtrack on vinyl now from  Sacred Bones Records.
Halloween, from director David Gordon Green and writer by Danny McBridestalks theaters on October 19, 2018.
