John Carpenter hit another milestone earlier this year when his debut LP, Lost Themes, arrived and became the best-selling album to be released by Brooklyn-based label Sacred Bones Records. The iconic horror movie director’s aim was to create a soundtrack for not a film hitting theaters, but the movies that play in all of our minds — and he’ll take that a step further when follow-up Lost Themes Remixed is released on October 16.

So what exactly do we get here? Lost Themes Remixed is a vinyl collection of several remixes that were already done for some of the original album’s songs, with eight tracks altogether.

Below is the never-before-released Prurient Remix of Lost Themes cut “Purgatory,” which will be included on the new collection.

In other news, Carpenter paid tribute to another horror movie legend, Wes Craven, who passed away on Sunday at age 76 after a battle with brain cancer. In a CNN segment called “Carpenter On Craven,” Carpenter talked about directing Wes Craven in a episode of 1993 horror anthology Body Bags, and the friendship they shared.
