Colin MacIntyre – or Mull Historical Society to his closest friends – has signed a publishing deal with Xtra Mile Music which, amazingly, is the new publishing arm of the rather marvellous Xtra Mile Recordings, and also, as most things are these days, a joint venture with BMG.

The deal covers MacIntyre’s back catalogue and future work, including a new MHS album and the songs from his debut long player under his new INK moniker. The new arrangement extends MacIntyre’s existing label relationship with Xtra Mile, and will see him working with both the indie’s MD Charlie Caplowe and BMG A&R man Hugo Turquet.

Confirming the deal, MacIntyre told reporters: “I am delighted to be part of the BMG family and to be Xtra Mile Music’s first signing. It is very exciting what Charlie and the Xtra Mile team are doing and I am thrilled to be a part of the journey with Charlie and Hugo; and doubly exited that all my material is together under one such fine roof”.

Caplowe added: “We’re very chuffed to be building another level in our relationship with Colin and to have the support and back up of the amazing BMG set up, we all feel very optimistic about this new venture”.
