Techno music producer & cultural icon Jeff Mills releases ‘METROPOLIS METROPOLIS’ three vinyl set: a new soundtrack for Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927) on Axis Records. 

“The last two previous versions made back in 1999 and in 2010, I thought it was time to revisit the film since so much had changed in the world and with people (in general) – Jeff Mills words – This new soundtrack is more emotional and deeper”.

Jeff Mills released his first soundtrack for Metropolis in 2000. Praising the film’s “timeless message of solidarity,” Mills stated that his objective was to “reintroduce and educate the theories and ideology” of Metropolis to the youth at the end of one a and beginning of a new one. Mills wrote a second soundtrack for Metropolis in 2010. This is the third. These are not drafts of a single work in progress, but entirely separate compositions, with original music, and each written from a different and unique perspective.

Mills has performed the scores many times over the years, “from large auditoriums to churches to projections on garage doors. But with every showing, there is always the understanding that its important to show this film to the public. That it’s not just a movie — it’s more about lessons about the human spirit that every one of us should be reminded of.”

‘METROPOLIS METROPOLIS’ release date: March 3rd, 2023
