US singer and songwriter Aloe Blacc has signed a new worldwide publishing deal with Warner/Chappell.

Jon Platt, Warner/Chappell’s President for North America, said of the deal: “Aloe is an extraordinary singer, a brilliant songwriter and storyteller, and a truly charismatic performer. His music brings a genre-crossing range of influences together into a unique, compelling voice all his own. I believe Aloe is a truly timeless artist who has only scratched the surface of his enormous talent. I am thrilled that he has chosen to join the Warner/Chappell family, and we are eagerly looking forward to working with him to realise his vision”.

The deal covers his recent ‘Wake Me Up’ EP (except the title track, an acoustic version of the Avicii single on which he appeared last year, which Warner/Chappell only has the rights to in North America), as well as his forthcoming third album, ‘Lift Your Spirit’, and all future songwriting.
