LISTEN: Is this the new theme from Ghostbusters: Afterlife?

October 23rd, 2021 by Marc Comments

One of the things that many fans noticed in the latest Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer was what sounded like a new take on the classic theme tune in the middle (here) and it seems that this may, indeed, be the official new theme from the movie.

Our friend Jason over at Ghostbusters News has found a recipe on the official GB YouTube page called Halloween Party Table Recipes and which features the track (below) and it’s a clearer listen than we get in the trailer and, even if you’re not interested in the bun baking, the video is well worth the listen for the music.

Jason also points out that the track was not arranged by Ghostbusters: Afterlife composer Rob Simonsen, so we’re wondering if it’ll be on the official score album as a soundtrack will not be released for the movie separately (more on that here).

Anyway, have a listen and let us know what you think… personally, I love it. Do you?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
