Nine Inch Nails Record New Version of 'Halloween' Theme

In order to prove their comeback game is as strong as ever, and just in time for All Hallows Eve, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have put together a pretty impeccable cover of the classic theme song for Halloween.

"John Carpenter's Halloween by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross" opens with one minute of gathering white noise before small motifs from Carpenter's Halloween score begin emerging.

John Carpenter shared a statement of his own, saying that Reznor and Ross' version of his song "does awesome justice to the original". "We left the theatre forever changed". The minimal, synth-powered themes to films like Halloween, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 are inseparable from the films themselves, and their timelessness was evident as Carpenter played them live in a bunch of internationally sold-out concert dates in 2016.

Recorded with Carpenter's seal of approval.

Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs of Hindostan is based on a fictitious story in the backdrop of the pre-Independence era. The actress will be seen playing a warrior in the film and she is leaving no stone unturned to play her part to perfection.

Reznor and Finch recorded their version of the track in celebration of a collection of a new John Carpenter album entitled Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, which includes 13 newly-recorded versions of his movie themes realised by Carpenter, his son Cody and godson Daniel Davies. We were damaged and scarred...and that theme stuck firmly in our heads.

Reznor's outfit Nine Inch Nails released a surprise EP in July this year, dropping "Add Violence" ahead of their run of summer shows.

The new album of Carpenter's iconic film scores will be available on October 20.

For his part, Carpenter is very pleased with the band's cover of his work.
