BMG signs Labrinth

By | Published on Tuesday 26 July 2016


Labrinth, who is, let us not even begin to forget, not only a “chart-topping singer and songwriter”, but also a “producer and multi-instrumentalist”, has signed an exclusive songwriting agreement with BMG. Good times.

Although probably best known for his collaborations with that there Tinie Tempah, Labrinth has also written and produced for the likes of Rihanna, Emeli Sande, Kygo, The Weeknd, Plan B and Mike Posner. Though superstar collaborations aside, this new deal comes as Labrinth preps his own somewhat delayed second album ‘Take Me To The Truth’, which is now due out later this year.

BMG UK’s VP Creative Kate Sweetsur confirmed she was “delighted” to be working with Labrinth, which is BMG code for “THRILLED” by the way. “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Labrinth to BMG”, said she. “The deal was very much a joint effort with Shani Gonzales in BMG’s LA office. Working internationally across everything we do is really important to us as a company”.

“Labrinth’s track record speaks for itself”, she added, before speaking for it anyway. “He’s firmly established himself as a chart-topping artist, a highly sought after collaborator and one of the most exciting songwriters of his generation. Being able to add him to the BMG roster demonstrates our continued desire and ability to work with the best creative talent in the music industry today”.
