Cinematic Legend John Carpenter Releases ‘Skeleton’ and ‘Unclean Spirit’ from ‘Lost Themes III’

Iconic horror director and composer John Carpenter may not have stepped behind the camera since 2010’s mixed The Ward – but continues to be a productive force in both the film and music world. Carpenter’s latest solo music releases arrived last week, Skeleton and its B-Side Unclean Spirit which will be released as a twelve-inch single due August 28th via Sacred Bones Records. The tracks make up the first taste of Lost Themes III – Carpenter’s upcoming new album.

Carpenter has found success with his first two Lost Themes album – standalone albums that were comprised of potential themes for his unmade films. The director followed this with a soundtrack album for 2018’s Halloween sequel and is set to score its two upcoming follow-ups Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends.

Skeleton delivers Carpenter’s tense brand of synths with a crushing dramatic tension, whilst Unclean Spirit is undeniably darker with a sense of the foreboding building throughout its gothic piano melody.
