John Carpenter Announces Soundtrack for Stephen King Movie Adaptation 'Firestarter'

John Carpenter, the filmmaker/composer behind the Halloween franchise, has announced the soundtrack for Firestarter, a new film adaptation of the Stephen King thriller.

Carpenter is joined by Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies on the project, and the record is set for digital release May 13 via Back Lot Music. It's the same day as the film’s theatrical and streaming Peacock release. A vinyl, CD, and cassette will then be released on October 14.

The new Keith Thomas-directed film, starring Zac Efron and Ryan Kiera Armstrong, is about a little girl with pyrokinetic powers. The book was published by Stephen King in September of 1980.

So far, Carpenter has released the end titles music for the film and has unveiled the full tracklist. The vinyl, CD, and cassette tape versions of the soundtrack can be pre-ordered here.

In other John Carpenter news, the composer released the soundtrack for the film Halloween Kills back in October of 2021. His most recent instrumental album, Lost Themes III: Alive After Death, came out earlier this year.
