John Carpenter shares new single & visualizer for “The Dead Walk”

John Carpenter has shared a new single and visualizer for “The Dead Walk,” a track from his first album of non-soundtrack music in nearly five years, Lost Themes III: Alive After Death, which is set for release on February 5th via Sacred Bones.

John famously called the first ‘Lost Themes’ album “a soundtrack for the movies in your mind and on ‘Alive After Death’ those movies are even more vivid.” “The Dead Walk” sees pulsing synths and skittering hi-hats call to mind a zombie apocalypse in a discotheque, a mental image reinforced by the accompanying visualiser in which artwork by illustrator Boneface is given creepy life by Liam Brazier’s animation. The clip also hints toward a more detailed visual collaboration to come.
