So Recordings signs Placebo

By | Published on Wednesday 29 January 2020


Placebo have signed with independent label So Recordings for the release of their next studio album – their first since 2013’s ‘Loud Like Love’.

Confirming the deal, the band’s manager Alex Weston says: “After many years of searching for our soulmates we found them in So Recordings. A surprise perhaps, but we couldn’t be happier to start the next phase in Placebo’s career with this team led by Adam Greenup and Reynold D’Silva. Good, honest, creative and inspiring people who we know are 100% committed to the band and this new album. It feels like home”.

The there mentioned Greenup has just been promoted to the role of MD at So Recordings’ parent company Silva Screen Music Group, reporting into CEO D’Silva.

Confirming that promotion, D’Silva says: “In the ten years Adam has been with the company, he has made a substantial contribution and, in many instances, has been a catalyst for positive change within Silva Screen. His new appointment recognises the role he has played and will see him work alongside myself to oversee all aspects of the group’s labels, including So Recordings and his existing legal and business affairs functions”.

Meanwhile, on his So Recordings label signing good old Placebo, D’Silva adds: “The band and their management could have signed with at least ten other labels and indeed they were pursued aggressively by all of them. To say we are over the moon is an understatement. Having heard the new tracks, this eighth album sees the band at their creative peak and cement their standing as a seminal band in the rock world”.
