Technically, Friday The 13th isn’t Michael Meyer’s shtick, but you can’t deny the release of this JOHN CARPENTER HALLOWEEN cover. It comes to us from Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor A.K.A. NINE INCH NAILS. Reznor & Ross are also the Oscar-winning duo behind soundtracks for THE SOCIAL NETWORK, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, GONE GIRL, and the recent live-action version of DEATH NOTE. Sooooo, I just went ahead and purchased this without listening to it. I figured they’re good for it.
You can listen to the track FOR FREE below. It’s already available as a single, but word has it that it will also be part of the upcoming JOHN CARPENTER ANTHOLOGY: MOVIE THEMES 1974-1998. Also also, NINE INCH NAILS dropped a new EP titled ADD VIOLENCE. If you’re looking for some mood-setting music for October, then you can’t go wrong with a Carpenter/NIN impulse buy.
