John Carpenter "Distant Dream"

John Carpenter  "Distant Dream"
Horror aficionado John Carpenter recently revealed plans to follow up Lost Themes with an aptly titled sequel called Lost Themes II, and now he's shared the first snippet of sound from the upcoming record.
 
A press release describes new track "Distant Dream" as "a perfect sci-fi fever dream, built on swelling synthesizer and pulsing drum machine," and the description checks out. Ominous beats and suspense-building synths swirl together on the cinematic song, gradually growing darker and heavier before finally buzzing out with a faint echo.
 
Lost Themes II arrives on April 15 via Sacred Bones. Right now, though, you can listen to "Distant Dream" in the player below.
