Legendary director/composer John Carpenter has teamed up with CHVRCHES for a pair of new remixes on a 7-inch due for release through Sacred Bones on December 10.

Carpenter has shared a remix of CHVRCHES' recent single "Good Girls," which appears on their forthcoming album, Screen Violence, while CHVRCHES have shared a rework of Carpenter's "Turning the Bones," taken from his newly released album, Lost Themes III: Alive After Death.

CHVRCHES frontwoman Lauren Mayberry elaborated on the crossover in a statement:

As horror fans, we know that John Carpenter is the godfather and the gold standard so we're so excited to get to work with him in any capacity. His films and music have been so impactful on us over the years, and without the stories he created, I am not sure that the concept of Screen Violence (and female narratives within the album) would exist in the way they do. On every album we get "remixes" but given the themes of this record, we had the idea that maybe we could get a song reimagined by a composer who has worked in that cinematic universe. John was top of our wishlist but we never really thought he'd reply, let alone that he'd send back something better than the original.

Carpenter said of the collaboration: "After we finished our remix, we asked them if they could also remix one of our songs in return, and they thought it was a great idea."
