John Carpenter Shares First Single from New Album, Announces More Tour Dates, ‘Lost Themes II’ Out April 15th on Sacred Bones‏

Following the recent announcement that John Carpenter will release a new album Lost Themes II this April 15th on Sacred Bones, we are pleased to share the record’s first single “Distant Dream.”

“Distant Dream” is a perfect sci-fi fever dream, built on swelling synthesizer and pulsing drum machine. The track is one of Carpenter’s creepiest works to date – proof the ‘70s horror genre’s innovator is still also its leader in 2016.

Listen to “Distant Dream” via Soundcloud & YouTube

The track accompanies a string of new live dates, including first ever appearances in the U.S., adding to the previously announced UK shows and European festival dates. These shows will be Carpenter’s first ever live performances and will see him take to the stage accompanied by his son Cody Carpenter, godson Daniel Davies and a full backing band, performing his classic film score themes and recent works from Lost Themes I and II.
