Sacred Bones Records has announced it will release an expanded edition last year’s Halloween: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack through Discogs. The set will be pressed on Exclusive Orange & Silver Splatter 2 LP variance and is limited to 500 copies. No release date was given, but pre-orders are up for grabs.
The expanded edition includes more than 28 additional minutes music from the film for a more complete, immersive listening experience. The additional material included on the expanded edition adds a total 24 cues to the album, spread across two more sides vinyl on the deluxe double LP version. The LP also has all new art and lavish packaging, including an optical-illusion lenticular sleeve that makes the flames around Michael Myers’s mask dance when you slide it f the record jacket.
2018’s Halloween, directed by David Gordon Green, starring Jamie Lee Curtis, and with music by series creator John Carpenter (along with his son and godson, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies) was a critical and box-fice smash. It grossed $159 million against a $10 million budget, becoming the most pritable Halloween movie since the 1978 original. The soundtrack album was a hit, too, debuting at No. 12 on the Billboard Albums chart and No. 2 on the vinyl chart, on its way to becoming one the most successful movie soundtracks the last decade.
