The American multi-talented composer, actor and music producer Jeff Russo (Fargo, Star Trek: Discovery, Legion, The Night Of, Snowfall, Counterpart) composed the soundtrack to the 2018 espionage action thriller Mile 22. The musician Migos recorded the new track Is You Read, which was first recorded for the Suicide Squad soundtrack. Russo took a break from his insanely busy TV schedule to write this and the main title. He delivered a solid, visceral ode to unescapable tension with the added bonus of some melodic pieces. Beautiful cues of solo piano motifs are alternated with dark passages of synths.
Mile 22 stars Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich and Lauren Cohan. It follows an elite CIA task force, composed of paramilitary officers from Ground Branch of Special Activities Division, that has to escort a high-priority asset 22 miles to an extraction point while being hunted by the government.
Mile 22 is available as a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on solid silver coloured vinyl.
