Milan Records is a record label located in Los Angeles, California specializing in film scores and soundtrack albums. In addition, Milan has an electronic catalog which features down-tempo, chillout, and eclectic electronic releases.

In July 2019, Milan was acquired by Sony Masterworks.[1] Coincidentally, Milan was distributed by BMG in the past, which Sony acquired in 2008.


Milan Entertainment was founded in 1978 by Emmanuel Chamboredon, who is still the CEO and President of the company. In the 1980s, Milan branched off to include Editions Milan Music and Editions Jade, the brand name under which all spiritual and classical music would fall. Milan Records US was established first in NYC in the late 1980s. It later relocated to Los Angeles, CA. Editions Milan Music became the Milan Records of today, at the forefront of music and film with soundtrack releases like Pan's Labyrinth (2006), Flags of Our Fathers (2006), The Queen (2006), The Secret in Their Eyes (2009), Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010), and The Three Musketeers: D'Artagnan (2023),[2] along with new artists releases, in the electronic genre, Emilie Simon or in the bluegrass genre, The Devil Makes Three.

Milan Records released Kick Back as part of soundtrack for Chainsaw Man in the United States. The single became the first song with Japanese lyrics to be certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[3]
