Milan Records today releases THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) featuring music by multiplatinum-selling producer, composer, musician and educator TOM HOLKENBORG aka JUNKIE XL. Available everywhere now, the album features score music written by Holkenborg for the fantasy film by Academy Award®-winning director George Miller. The project is the latest in an ongoing creative partnership between Holkenborg and Miller, with the duo working together on the 2015 blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road and the franchise’s highly-anticipated prequel Furiosa. Also included within the 9-track collection is “Cautionary Tale,” an original song performed by Matteo Bocelli. Written by Holkenborg in collaboration with George Miller and Augusta Gore, the emotionally resonant track features as the film’s end title theme. Originally making its world premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, Three Thousand Years of Longing debuts in theaters today.

Of the soundtrack, composer TOM HOLKENBORG says, “This movie spans 3000 years, and George wanted a score that could move from the ancient to the contemporary, while capturing all the emotions the characters experience in this film. This is really apparent in the main melody, which took two years to create! The goal was to compose something that sounds like it has always been here, and always will be. Music is essential to George's vision, and the arrangements had to be incredibly precise to convey the feeling captured on screen. Working with George is a joy, he continues to make me a better composer, and I am honored to call him a collaborator and a friend.”

"Tom has a very comprehensive understanding of music. He understood that this film had to evoke the magical feeling about the wonders and catastrophes of this world,” adds director GEORGE MILLER. “His score allows you to lose yourself in the story from the opening credits until the end."
