By | Published on Tuesday 14 May 2019

Warner/Chappell has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Spanish singer-songwriter Melendi, the most streamed artist ever in Spain according to Spotify stats, who also moonlights as a judge on the Spanish and Mexican versions of ‘The Voice’.

Confirming the deal, Warner/Chappell MD Santiago Menendez-Pidal said: “Melendi’s ability to fuse rock, rumba and flamenco styles with a gift for storytelling has struck a collective chord in Spain. We’re so proud that he’s invested his trust in us as his new music publishing partner. He has an incredible catalogue and some of the new projects he’s working on will blow fans away”.

Melendi himself added: “I am glad to start this new chapter in my life with Warner/Chappell. I am sure that we will achieve great things together”.

The new deal with Melendi might just be the first to be printed out on headed notepaper bearing Warner/Chappell’s all new logo. Wouldn’t that be nice? You can see that new logo on the publisher’s Spanish site here if you so wish.
