Legendary composer/directorJohn Carpenterhas returned with his first non-soundtrack music since 2016’sLost Themes II. Collaborating again with sonCody Carpenterand godsonDaniel Davies, his bandmates and co-composers for the David Gordon Green-directedHalloweenfilms, Carpenter is sharing the propulsive new single “Skeleton” and its B-side, the haunting “Unclean Spirit.”
The sessions for these songs saw the trio shifting their focus from scoring for the screen and engaging a totally different creative muscle. Instead of being guided by what was happening in the world ofHalloween, they were free to work toward other ends.
“It was refreshing to be able to write music that didn’t have to fit to any sort of locked image,” John said. “We also had a specific focus and direction we wanted to follow when working onHalloween, both in terms of mindset and instruments, and being able to return to working without that narrow focus was refreshing. Although working onHalloweendidn’t specifically influence any of these new compositions, there is always a honing of craft that must take place when working on a film likeHalloween, and our improved skills definitely helped us in writing these songs.”
