John Carpenter Announces ‘Halloween Ends’ Soundtrack, Releases New Song

    Halloween Ends, the latest installment in the current Halloween trilogy, will be released on October 14. The film’s score, composed by John Carpenter and his frequent collaborators Daniel Davies and Cody Carpenter, is out the same day, with a physical release to follow on January 20. A companion EP features four versions of the Boy Harsher song ‘Burn it Down’, which will arrive in tandem with the soundtrack via Sacred Bones/Nude Club. Listen to ‘The Procession’ and ‘Burn It Down’ from the Halloween Ends score below.

    Boy Harsher said of their contribution to the film:

    “During an extremely brief period of rest between tours, we got this call from the music supervisor of Halloween Ends. The director, David Gordon Green, had listened to our music and wanted to use something for this final installment in the trilogy – Halloween Ends. We flew to New York the next day to meet the team and discuss the possibilities. It was totally surreal. Obviously we’re huge fans of Carpenter and the franchise is a fav, but to work with Gordon Green was also so special, his early films (George Washington, Undertow, Snow Angels) were heavy influences on our work. The real kicker is that Halloween Ends was shot in Savannah, GA – the birthplace of Boy Harsher and where we met. Unbelievable. It all felt too synchronous, and we knew we had to make something work although we were about to leave for a multi-month tour that week. We flew home to Massachusetts, dug through old demos, and found “Burn It Down”. In the end it was the perfect energy for the bittersweet love affair between the film characters Allyson and Corey, so during a couple days off – we cleaned it up and made it come alive.
