John Carpenter has announced his new album, Lost Themes. The album is set for release for February 2015.
John Carpenter, known to the music world as a legendary director and composer will release his debut solo album Lost Themes on February 3 via Sacred Bone Records. Carpenter recently shared the song, “Vortex” from the album for fans to enjoy.
In a press release, John Carpenter shared his excitement over the creation of the album:
“It can be both great and bad to score over images, which is what I’m used to. Here there were no pressures. No actors asking me what they’re supposed to do. No crew waiting. No cutting room to go to. No release pending. It’s just fun. And I couldn’t have a better set-up at my house, where I depended on (collaborators) Cody (Carpenter, of the band Ludrium) and Daniel (Davies, who scored I, Frankenstein) to bring me ideas as we began improvising. The plan was to make my music more complete and fuller, because we had unlimited tracks. I wasn’t dealing with just analogue anymore. It’s a brand new world. And there was nothing in any of our heads when we started other than to make it moody.”
All the songs on the album are said to be very technical given Carpenter’s experience as a composer. There is high energy created from the merging sounds of instruments such as pianos and percussion.
