Sony Music Publishing has signed Danger Mouse – real name Brian Burton – to a new worldwide publishing agreement.

Burton himself was not on hand to comment on the deal, but three people from Sony have. And in many ways that’s better, isn’t it? Yeah? Good.

“Danger Mouse is not only a brilliant songwriter, but a true innovator who pushes creative boundaries and challenges listeners to think outside the box”, says SMP CEO Jon Platt. “We look forward to working alongside Brian and his team in this new phase of his career”.

SVP International David Ventura adds: “Brian is a living legend, and one of the most pioneering songwriters and producers of this century. It is a real honour for all of us at SMP to have this unique chance to be working with him and Jeff [Antebi] his manager”.

“We are not only THRILLED”, Ventura goes on, “to be representing some of his most prestigious songs, many of which recognised by the Grammys, but we are also opening a new relationship towards the future. From his own projects to artists collaborations or even soundtracks, the opportunities with a genius like Danger Mouse are limitless, and it is with the biggest smile I say that this is a dream come true!”

Meanwhile, UK catalogue guy Alex Sheridan says: “We are beyond delighted to be working with Danger Mouse. Through his artist projects, production and songwriting he has proven himself as one of the great collaborators of our time”.

“By working across his esteemed catalogue”, he adds, “and looking forward to what will be a tremendously exciting period of his career, we want to help him build upon the legendary status he has earned so far. I’d like to thank Brian and his team for putting their trust in Sony Music Publishing”.

The announcement of the new deal follows the recent news that Burton is reviving his Broken Bells collaboration with The Shins’ James Mercer for new album ‘Into The Blue’, which will arrive later this year.

Here’s their new single, ‘We’re Not In Orbit Yet’:
