John Carpenter 'Lost Themes II' (album stream)
Director, composer and general master of horror John Carpenter has been slowly teasing the arrival of Lost Themes II, sharing singles like "Distant Dream" and "Angel's Asylum." Now, two weeks before the album's release, he's streaming the upcoming record in its entirety.
 
As logic would deduce, the new album marks the follow-up to last year's Lost Themes, and it hears him extending his musical reach even further outside the realm of film scores. Carpenter worked with his son Cody Carpenter and godson Daniel Davies on last year's offering, and the teamwork carried over into its sequel.
 
Lost Themes II took a faster, more focused approach to recording, resulting in a collection of music that a press release describes as "not unlike Carpenter's classic, notoriously low-budget early films."
 
You can now hear what the final product sounds like by giving Lost Themes II a listen in the player below [via NPR] before it's officially released on April 15 through Sacred Bones.
