Jeff Mills announces new album, ‘The Eyewitness’, shares track: Listen

Jeff Mills’ next album, titled ‘The Eyewitness’, will be released next month. Listen to new single ‘Those Who Worked Against Us (Vendetta Mix)’ below.

The Detroit techno originator’s new nine-track LP tackles themes of trauma and shock and is described by the label, Mills’ own Axis Records, as “an album created to point to an antidote on how to protect our mental health condition”. Opening track ‘In A Traumatized World’ sets up the album’s narrative as “The story of what happened to push humanity over the point of no return”, according to the label announcement. It’s out on 7th July.

“Trauma and the shock effect of it — the leftover residue of harsh reality so impactful that it shapes the way you imagine, envision and calculate your position in regard to everything and everyone around you”, Mills said in a press statement about the new LP. “A new type of psychological radius evolves. Boundaries are reinforced. Relationships are recessed. A damaged brief system float aimlessly. Vulnerable to and for anything reminiscent of a worthy cause. The truth about facts became satirical monologue, dead end expressions that have no critical arrangement. We all know someone that either has been or will be”. 

This is the prolific techno legend’s second new album of 2024, following March’s cosmic ‘The Trip – Enter The Black Hole‘, which was accompanied by a limited-run live audio-visual show in Tokyo. The vinyl version of the LP was mastered and pressed to spin in reverse

Last October, Mills’ featured in German designer Jil Sander’s Fall/Winter 2023 campaign.  

Tomorrow Comes The Harvest, Mills’ band with the late Tony Allen, returned with a new lineup, album and tour in 2022.

2022 marked the 30th anniversary of Jeff Mills’ pioneering debut LP ‘Waveform Transmission Vol. 1’ — revisit Ben Cardew’s in-depth feature on the game-changing techno album.
