Every day is Halloween for Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, starting with the only Friday the 13th to occur in October. The Nine Inch Nails musicians recorded a new version of John Carpenter’s “Halloween,” the recognizable theme from the film Halloween, not to be confused with the music from the film Friday the 13th

“John Carpenter, it’s your fault that I turned out the way I did,” Reznor said by way of explaining the track will be available through Sacred Bones, Reznor’s own Null Corporation and here on Amazon.
