Following its October 8 opening at the New York Film Festival, Paul Thomas Anderson's new film, Junun, will have its exclusive worldwide premiere on MUBI on October 9.

Earlier this year, Paul Thomas Anderson joined his close friend and collaborator Jonny Greenwood and Israeli musician, composer, and poet Shye Ben Tzur on a trip to Rajasthan in Northwestern India, where they were hosted by the Maharaja of Jodhpur. Their destination was the 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort, where Greenwood (with the help of Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich) and a group of musicians called from across the Indian sub-continent worked on Ben Tzur's album, which will be released by Nonesuch in November. Additional details and pre-orders on the album will be announced shortly.

The band assembled a make-shift studio at the fort and over the following three weeks created the collaboration that becomes the music and film of Junun (an alternate spelling of "junoon," the Arabic, Persian, Urdu, and Hindi word for "mania," or "the madness of love"). The results deliver the close camaraderie of artistic collaboration and a sonic, visual and sensory experience that capture the imagination.

On the deal, MUBI Founder and CEO Efe Cakarel said: "The founding vision of MUBI was to build a place where a director such as Paul Thomas Anderson could premiere a unique film like Junun. To be here today is not only an honor and a significant milestone but a realization of everything we dreamed of in the beginning."

Paul Thomas Anderson added: "We're huge fans of MUBI and wanted to be a part of what they do. Hopefully people will discover both the music that's been made by Shye and Jonny and a great place to watch films."

MUBI is a curated online cinema where members can stream cult, classic, and award-winning films instantly.

    Makaya McCraven's new album, In These Times, is out now on International Anthem / Nonesuch / XL. It is the album McCraven’s been trying to make since he started making records, an appropriately career-defining body of work. The eleven-song suite was created over seven-plus years, as McCraven strived to fuse odd-meter compositions from his working songbook with orchestral, large-ensemble arrangements and the edit-heavy “organic beat music” he’s honed over the years. With contributions from over a dozen musicians and creative partners from his tight-knit circle of collaborators—including Jeff Parker, Junius Paul, Brandee Younger, Joel Ross, and Marquis Hill—In These Times highlights McCraven’s gift for collapsing space, destroying borders, and blending past, present, and future into poly-textural arrangements of post-genre, jazz-rooted 21st-century folk music.
