Sturgill Simpson Anime Film Sound & Fury Coming to Netflix


GRAMMY Award-winning recording artist Sturgill Simpson is merging American rock music and Japanese animation in a revolutionary new way in Sound & Fury, an anime film that is set to stream globally on Netflix this fall.

The film is set entirely to music from Simpson’s forthcoming album, also called Sound & Fury, which will be released simultaneously through Elektra Records. The film features a different anime segment for each individual song.

The announcement was made this evening by Sturgill Simpson at the San Diego Comic-Con on a panel with several of the filmmakers.

Produced by and based on a story by Simpson entitled Sound & Fury, the film was written and directed by Jumpei Mizusaki, founder of renowned CG animation studio Kamikaze Douga and director for the animated film Batman Ninja. Takashi Okazaki, creator of Japanese manga series Afro Samurai, served as the film’s character designer.

Additional directors include Masaru Matsumoto of Grayscale Arts (Starship Troopers: Traitors of Mars), Michael Arias (The Animatrix), Henry Thurlow and Arthell Isom of D’Art Shtajio, and Koji Morimoto (Akira). Shunsuke Ochiai is co-executive producer.

The Sound & Fury album was produced by Simpson and marks his first full-length release since 2016’s acclaimed A Sailor’s Guide To Earth, which won “Best Country Album” and was nominated for “Album of the Year” at the 59th GRAMMY Awards.
