John Carpenter Debuts New Track “The Dead Walk”
John Carpenter’s career as a director seems to be done — he’s only made two features this century, and the last one, The Ward, came out ten years ago. Bummer.
Fortunately, Carpenter’s career as a musician is still going strong: he’s just released “The Dead Walk,” another stunning new track from his forthcoming Lost Themes III: Alive After Death.
Set for released on February 5 via Sacred Bones, Lost Themes III: Alive After Death will be Carpenter’s first album of non-soundtrack music in nearly five years. The album reunites him with his son, Cody Carpenter (whose mother, lest ye forget, is the great Adrienne Barbeau), and Daniel Davies, both of whom have been working with the filmmaker/composer since 2015.

The previously-released single, “Weeping Ghost,” can be streamed here.
The Carpenters and Davies are scoring Halloween Kills, the follow-up to Halloween 2018 (which they also scored). The movie is currently scheduled for release on October 15, 2021, although with the coronavirus currently wreaking havoc on studio release schedules, who knows whether or not that will be when it reaches theaters, or if it will even reach theaters.
