Sony/ATV has extended its worldwide publishing deal with Greg Kurstin. The songwriter/producer has already had a relationship with the company for over a decade, so why bother changing now?

Talking up the deal, Sony/ATV CEO Marty Bandier said that Kurstin is one of the company’s “most important songwriters” while the man himself said he was “very happy” to continue working with the “great team”.

His manager, Rachel Kurstin, added: “It has been a pleasure working with our team at Sony/ATV. As Greg’s manager, I feel like we have really accomplished a lot together during Greg’s time with the company. I know Sony/ATV is leading the fight for the digital rights of songwriters and that is something we are proud to be a part of”.

Up for Producer Of The Year at next year’s Oscars and co-nominated for Best Original Song with Sia at the Golden Globes, Kurstin has songs on the forthcoming Charli XCX, Kelly Clarkson and Gwen Stefani albums. He’s also working on a fourth album with singer Inara George as The Bird And The Bee.
