I don't think this is the TR/AR version. This is the newly recorded version by Carpenter.

Makes sense, but the sample is basically nothing, so you wouldn't be spoiling yourself. The first 10-15 seconds is just drone noise, hence the :p. Still, though, no reason to listen when you only have to wait less than a day!

John Carpenter is actually for real returning to do the entire score. (http://www.slashfilm.com/john-carpenter-will-create-halloween-reboot-score/)

This cover is insanely great. My favorite movie theme too, so this is extra fucking cool for me.

I disagree. I know Carpenter's original theme forwards and backwards, and Trent and Atticus' cover is definitely not "almost the same". Seriously, listen to the original (not any of the souped up versions out there) and tell me their version is "almost the same".

Iím warming up to it. The last minute and a half are superb, and I wish they would have focused more on that part. Sounds like the Halloween theme via The Background World.

Then again, on third listen, I am enjoying the rest more. I wouldnít mind if Trent and Atticus helped out Carpenter for the upcoming sequel...

I think the whole point is that the last 3 minutes has the impact that it does precisely because the prior 4:30ish is similar to the original with just some flourishes added to give it a grander feel. Then that ending comes in and surprises you.

This is fantastic.

I'm a fan of Carpenter, but Halloween is probably my least favorite of his movie themes, so I kinda wish they've chosen something (anything) else from his discography. That said, those last couple of minutes rock.

This is delightful. A perfect treat for Friday the 13th.

For those saying it sounds too much like the original—think of some of the not so great remixes (looking at you, Things Falling Apart) and ask yourself if you’d prefer something like that. You wouldn’t, right? On that same album, there’s the cover of Numan’s “Metal.” Would you say it sounds too much like the original or...

Like “Metal,” this pays a lot of respect to the original with some trademark TR/AR flourishes (just TR with regards to “Metal”).

^^^ Aw, damn. I had assumed (without actually looking) that the album was all different artists covering Carpenter themes.

As for the track itself, I really like it. I'm not crazy about the way the piano of the main theme is sort of muted instead of being piercing and reverb-y, but I'm sure it'll grow on me. I agree that the end is way more interesting than the rest, but I also like that the song builds up to it. Act I: TR/AR, Act II: Halloween, Act III: TR/AR + Halloween = Sex.

Been up for a few weeks but I just found "Halloween" available on Bandcamp for $1. Much rather support them than Amazon, Apple, etc. + they have excellent variety of download types & you can download unlimited times with various formats. I personally like WAV but also got MP3 for my phone/car. I almost bought it from Amazon but am glad I didn't. Such a great reimagining of "Halloween". I had hoped they would do it in concert but maybe next year?

I tried my two local indie record shops (seems we are in the same area), and both have told me that this is a Europe release only and that they wouldn't be able to get it. That said, there is a seller on ebay who has it (link below) and a shop I ordered from, Piccadilly records in Manchester, England who is taking preorders for a reasonable price with shipping. But I was basically told we won't find it in the states (at least in the New England area). I just hate pre-ordering and having that 'will I actually get it..." drama. Crossing my fingers.

I believe you are correct. Every place that appears to be carrying it, now has the release date set for 10/26.

Don't think it's front and back. The vinyl is coming out of the right side on both pictures. Maybe another case of randomness like the red and blue sleeves for NTAE.

Sacred Bones has done some random colors with their John Carpenter vinyl, and they might be making the sleeve the random item in this particular release. When I say random, I really mean it. Like you order the record, and maybe it is black or maybe it is orange or a splattered color. Luck of the draw. See the links below as an example. Sometimes the jackets are 'mirrored', black and white or silver too.

I totally get that. I rarely do merch at shows, which means I'm always just waiting for the NIN store to post something new (I'm looking at you, Quake, Patriots Day, The Slip, and With Teeth), so when they do drop something like this, I barely even think of it as spending real money - it lives more in the gas/food/rent department. You know, the essentials.

Yup. Definitely two versions. I understand a new version makes it more worthwhile for people that bought the digital version of the original mix, but I feel if they were gonna do an alternate mix they should have nixed Carpenter's original from side B and put the original TRAR mix there. I personally like the original mix better.

OK, so I listened to the vinyl rip, and here are the things I noticed that are different.

First of all, it's not drastically different, as some of the descriptions here implied. The biggest difference is the different instrumentation for the main piano melodic line. Whereas the original used something that's (for lack of a better word) plinky and flat, the new version uses something that sounds a little more electronic and with some reverb and it sounds closer to the original.

Otherwise everything is about the same (until the ending), with just a couple minor alterations, like removing the dissonant (wrong?) notes at 3:45, and removing the lingering dissonant notes from 4:40-4:50. There's a rhythmic background sound that starts earlier at about 2:20; it doesn't show up in the original until about 2:42. A ghostly moaning sound might have been removed, starting at about 5:15.

And then starting at about 5:50, for the last minute of the new version, it diverges in that it doesn't add the driving bass and drums, but fades out with the existing elements instead.

I think that's about it. Any other perceived changes are probably just due to EQ or other vinyl sound quality differences. I think there's a bit of wow on the turntable that was used for playback causing a little distortion. Oh, and the L/R channels are reversed compared to the original. I doubt TRAR did that, so the person who digitized this probably got their cables backwards.

Your description is almost entirely accurate, but I would personally consider that to be drastically different. The only thing not changed for significant lengths is some of the background instrumentation, and even some of that is changed. Towards the end of the middle section, and for the entirety of the ending section, around half of all sounds are different.

Not really. The only instrumentation that's been changed is the main piano motif. Aside from that, I think most people listening to them in succession would be hard-pressed to note any differences between the two until the final minute, because the few changes I noted are really subtle.

Yep, the vinyl version, IMO, has enough differences to warrant this as its own separate version (version 2.0, vinyl version, etc). The piano is what I would describe as sharper and less muted than the version released last year, some of the stringy sounding synth from the reprise of the main piano motif is missing, and the drum outro is completely gone and replaced with nary a sign of a beat at all. It's more implied by bouncing synthesizers than with any kind of percussion.

I... LIKE IT. I kind of like the idea of having two different versions of this reworking - one digital and one vinyl. Someone will need to rip the vinyl version properly for digital consumption, but this is kind of fucking cool.

I guess I prefer the digital one. So far every time I've listened to the vinyl for this, I'm left feeling cheated when the big finale doesn't actually happen. However, I definitely prefer the synth line in the vinyl version more than the Digital. I need a proper rip of this so I can cherry pick a new version in Audacity.

Seems like nin.com was definitely the way to go for this. I’m jealous of everyone who received the vinyl already. Thought I’d order direct from the label bc the record would get shipped out quickly lol. Ordered within minutes of it going up, and have been watching and waiting as the vinyl sits in pre-shipment since the 21st? I really love Sacred Bones, but they are extremely slow with shipping - and it seems to be the norm for every single order through their site that I’ve done over the last few years from vinyl to merch.

Anyone from Canada get there’s yet? I guess $15 shipping turns out to be UPS Mail Inovations which also means once local courier (Canada post) receive it to ship they don’t offer tracking.

Would you believe me if I'll tell that I haven't seen even one film from Halloween series, and never knew the original Carpenter's theme? So when the TRAR version was released, I immediately recognized the motif from... 'High Tech Low Life' by Die Krupps?

This blows my mind. Do you celebrate Halloween / have you ever gone into a Halloween store? This is as alien a concept to me as not knowing Tubular Bells or the Twilight Zone theme song. At least in America, these songs are inescapable.

This is me, except I don't think I've heard the song anywhere. Never seen the films, haven't even bothered to check out TRAR's version because I don't know the original piece of music, so it will most likely mean nothing.

when i placed my order (direct from sacred bones), i got one orange and one black copy of the 12" single

today, when i received my order, i got one orange copy of the 12" single, and one black copy...of the score for the new Halloween film (i already own the clear/orange "art edition"). i put an e-mail into sacred bones customer service but jesus christ how do you mix that up? it clearly states in my order what i'm supposed to receive.

Well I mean they're both called "Halloween", if a packer is going to mix anything up then two releases with the same title are quite likely I'd say

Nope, and no. As a general rule, Halloween isn't celebrated in Eastern Europe. Sure we know about it, and some people, companies or stores do celebrate it but at much smaller scale comparing to North America and Western Europe.
I also don't know the Twilight Zone theme (Tubular Bells I do know).

Ah, I didn't realize you were in Eastern Europe. Yeah, in America (probably Western Europe as well) all three of those songs are so ingrained in the culture that I would imagine most people don't even know their origins, but EVERYONE knows the music, similarly to how everyone knows the Bridal Chorus, but practically no one has heard of Lohengrin, the play it's from. I'm sure there's similarly ubiquitous music in Belarus that I've never heard.

Holy shit.


WE SCREWED UP. The audio contained on the 12” pressing of Halloween released on Sacred Bones is a previous recording of the Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross version of the song, which differs from what was released digitally last year. A lacquer of the 'previous version' was cut and then scrapped, because Trent and Atticus decided that they could improve upon the recording. They went on to create the ‘definitive’ track that is available everywhere digitally. A MISTAKE WAS MADE when pressing the currently available 12”, and the ‘previous’ version was erroneously included. To correct this unforgivable error, we are reprinting the CORRECT version and will provide it to you free of charge. We are currently working on the repress. As of now, we are expecting these to ship in early 2019 and will update you soon on the delivery timeline. As a NIN.com customer, you do not need to take any additional steps to receive your replacement copy. The replacement offer includes those who purchased from other retailers. Customers may contact the point of purchase for information on how to obtain their replacement.

Repress is coming, the audio on the vinyl was an early version and not the final version (released digitally). Contact the retailer your bought it from, scared bones is looking to repress and ship in early 2019. If you bought it through them, you don't have to do anything, a free copy will be sent. Everyone else, needs to contact the retailer they bought it from.

Or see the above post...LOL

It's all good homie! You now have an unintended version and they are still going to send out the right version... eventually. I know they fucked up your black versions, I get it, it sucks that someone fucked up but, It's still kind of cool, in a way. And in no way I'm I trying to be a dick here, just trying to point out the positive side of this debacle.

Just quoting it here in case -


A. Customers who purchased the record online or have their receipt from a brick and mortar store handy may email brad@sacredbonesrecords.com a copy of their receipt and Sacred Bones will ship them a replacement copy when the pressing is complete. B. If a customer purchased their copy from a brick and mortar store and doesn't have their receipt, they may show their physical LP copy to the store from which it was purchased, at which point YOU/the store can fill out a Google Form providing the customer's information. The customer can then keep their original copy and once the pressing is complete, Sacred Bones will ship the replacement copy directly to the customer's provided address on the Google Form.

I just watched the original Halloween yesterday for the first time.
Idk what kept me from watching it for so long. I love the TR and AR cover and it's what pushed me to be interested in watching the movie. The soundtrack makes that movie (just my opinion) but it was a great film.
I have an even greater appreciation for their cover now. Excited for the second copy to come in next year!

That's how every John Carpenter movie is. He has some absolute classics and some absolute duds, but ALL of his scores are great. There are a lot of bands today (called synthwave or outrun) that are a throw back to a synthpoppy 80s sound that never actually existed. The thing is, John Carpenter and Vangelis we're doing it in the 70s. That's how ahead of their time they were. The idealized version of 80s music that is being made now, in the 2010s, was being done a decade before the music currently being emulated. I feel like he doesn't get nearly enough credit for being such a visionary musician.
