Two years ago, legendary filmmaker John Carpenter released Lost Themes, his first album of songs that were not scores or soundtracks. Today, he announced that we are getting a follow up, Lost Themes II, out in April.
For this sophomore album Carpenter and his bandmates/writing partners Cody Carpenter (his son) and Daniel Davies (his godson) met in person to work on the songs, something they weren’t able to do for the first. Expect the classic brooding Carpenter synth sound throughout the album, with hints of electric and acoustic guitar.
As with the first album, Carpenter and crew will be touring, something that is still very new for the great horror director. European tour dates are below and expect US dates soon. See the tracklist for Lost Themes II below and look for the album from Sacred Bones April 15.
