John Carpenter has set out plans for new album 'Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998'.
The album follows last year's 'Lost Themes', and finds the renowned director re-visiting some of his most famous themes.
Using the same band as 'Lost Themes', the new album begins with the theme from no-budget sci-fi flick Dark Star and moves forward through Assault On Precinct 13, Halloween, and more.
John Carpenter has also covered Ennio Morricone's spectacularly bleak theme from The Thing, commenting: “I asked Morricone to please compose something with a very few notes... And brilliantly, he did.”
The director has shared a re-recorded version of the theme from 'In The Mouth of Madness' - the original, Metallica-inspired riff was played by The Kinks' Dave Davies, while this version is performed by the guitarist's son.
Tune in now.
