Paul Miller (aka DJ Spooky) is a renaissance man with his base of interest rooted firmly in the world of creativity through sound. Now, he returns to his original form as DJ and master provocateur with his new album  “The Secret Song.” In his role as recording artist and producer, Miller has worked with or remixed everyone from Metallica to Yoko Ono; from the Kronos Quartet to Killah Priest to Beck, showing his many facets as a creative force in the world of music.

“The Secret Song” is DJ Spooky’s take on the changing world of 21st century music, economics, and global culture. With material taken from collaborations with people as diverse as Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, old school African hip-hop legends Zimbabwe Legit and Mike Ladd to political hip-hop crew The Coup, golden-age legends The Jungle Brothers, and Iran’s Sussan Deyhim (who sings in Farsi), DJ Spooky connects the dots between jazz, classical music, and the struggle to create new, dynamic relationships between old school hip-hop and the 21st century’s rapidly changing info-culture landscape.

Showcasing his filmmaking, the release is accompanied by a limited edition DVD. Following in the steps of The Cinematic Orchestra’s rescore of Dziga Vertov’s cinema classic “Man with A Camera,” DJ Spooky remixed and rescored Vertov’s rare first collage film “Kino-Glaz” (“Cinema-Eye"). "The Secret Song" will be released on October 6, 2009 via Thirsty Ear Recordings.
