Brad Pitt is officially starting a new career in the music industry.

After a thorough redesign, the 57-year-old actor has partnered with Emmy-winning music producer Damien Quintard to revive Miraval Studios, the iconic recording facility situated at Château Miraval in Correns, France, that has held sessions for Pink Floyd, Sting, and The Cranberries.

The music studio, constructed in 1977 by Château Miraval’s then-owner Jacques Loussier, went unused for two decades until Pitt and Quintard decided to restore it to allow artists to record new material.

Quintard told The Hollywood Reporter via a Zoom conversation that he and Pitt “immediately clicked” when they met in Paris.

He remembered, “It was an intense moment where we just talked and talked about sound.  I was amazed at how sensitive and precise he was in his analysis of music.”

Much of the studio’s old recording equipment will be incorporated into a modern setting, including a desk created by Pitt and Quintard. It will also include multiple recording booths, sound and video editing workstations, rare musical instruments and synthesizers, and a mezzanine overlooking the whole studio.

The facility, according to Quintard, has “redefined a remarkable natural reverb so we can record voices or instruments anywhere in the studio. It really is a space where you can produce anything from pop and rock, to hip-hop and classical records.”

The studio is connected to a tower that can accommodate visiting musicians, so artists are never far from their work and may spend weeks on the site recording their next masterpiece. Access to the estate’s swimming pool and meals from Château Miraval’s chefs are also provided.

Château Miraval is a property near to Pitt’s heart, as fans know. The Oscar winner bought the estate in 2012 with then-partner Angelina Jolie, and the two married in the estate’s chapel in 2014.

Even though Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split in 2016, he still owns the estate, which is known for its on-site vineyard.

“The combination of Brad’s vision for Miraval and our common passion for taking the time to make simple but beautiful things has resulted in something that is one-of-a-kind,” Quintard said. “We are so excited for musicians of all types to be a part of what we’ve created.”

Miraval Studios will officially open in the summer of 2022.
