Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ 'Halloween' theme released on vinyl

Last year, October 2017, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross released a version of John Carpenter’s classic horror theme for Halloween.

Their special interpretation, which was released in celebration of Carpenter’s album Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, is now being sent to vinyl to coincide with David Gordon-Green Halloween remake which is set to hit the cinemas. 

According to label Sacred Bones, the A-side vinyl will feature Reznor and Ross and, on the filp side, the B-side will feature Carpenter’s 2017 version of the theme. 

“I clearly remember my friends and I at thirteen years old conning our parents into letting us see Halloween when it came out in 1978,” Reznor said of the cover. “We left the theatre forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the shit genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads. John Carpenter, it’s your fault that I turned out the way I did.”

John Carpenter added: “Moody and dark, Trent Reznor‬ and Atticus Ross’ version of Halloween does amazing justice to the original. I’m impressed.”‬‬
