Interscope Records has announced its partnership with Afterlife, the visionary label owned by internationally acclaimed electronic music duo Tale Of Us, composed of Carmine Conte (MRAK) and Matteo Milleri (Anyma). The collaboration will enable Interscope to release the debut album by Anyma and distribute all Afterlife releases, including future recordings and its historic catalog.
John Janick, Chairman and CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M, expressed his excitement about the collaboration. He said, “Over their tremendous careers as artists and label owners, Carmine and Matteo have helped shape dance music culture for an entire generation. We are excited to collaborate with them to bring their music to an even larger global audience.” A&R Executive Ryan Roy, who was instrumental in bringing the duo to Interscope, also shared his enthusiasm, stating that “Carmine and Matteo have made their distinctive mark in music both as artists and as label owners. Working with them on all of their future recordings as well as with the amazing artists on Afterlife is a massive honor for us.”
The first music to be released under the new deal is today’s release from Anyma called “Welcome To The Opera.” The highly anticipated single features frequent collaborator and futurist Grimes. A staple in both Anyma and Tale Of Us sets over the past year, the sought-after track sees two preeminent musical visionaries joining forces to create a truly one-of-a-kind record. Anyma’s debut album is expected later this year.
Anyma’s debut album is one of the most highly-anticipated releases of the year, and ‘Welcome To The Opera’ is just the beginning. The album promises to be a multi-disciplinary project that combines music and contemporary fine art. The project is the brainchild of Matteo Milleri, a founding member of Tale Of Us, whose music and visual art have been causing a stir in the music world.
Anyma’s live performances are truly revolutionary and have captured the imaginations of millions of fans around the world. The shows are an immersive, once-in-a-lifetime experience that goes beyond anything that has come before. The visuals feature a humanoid robot trying to escape from the screen, creating a unique and unforgettable experience.
