Sister-sister pop types Tegan and Sara Quin, aka Tegan & Sara, have signed to Sony/ATV in a co-publishing deal that’ll reach all over the globe. And beyond!

It’ll cover every single one of the seven LPs T&S have released to date, and also apply to their next, which whilst it’s still a glint in the pair’s near-genetically-identical eyes, is anticipated to start taking shape in Q4 of next year.

Reading each other’s minds in that weird way twins do, Tegan and Sara say this in unison: “We’re very excited to be joining the Sony/ATV family, and we’re pleased to have our seven-album catalogue united under one global roof. As we continue to deliver Tegan & Sara albums, we also intend to expand our unique songwriting brand with co-writes and toplines for other artists”.

And dropping in his two dollars’ worth on the deal, Sony/ATV’s Senior Creative Director, Tyler Childs adds: “Tegan and Sara are two of the premiere songwriters and iconic artists of the past decade. We’re so excited to dive into their extensive catalogue and collaborate on future co-writing opportunities. I look forward to working side-by-side with the girls for many years to come”.

And ending this newsflash, Piers Henwood, MD of Tegan & Sara’s management firm Amelia Artists, chimes in: “Having self-administrated Tegan & Sara’s publishing company from our management office over the past few album cycles, we had a clear set of expectations for what we wanted in a global partner. Sony/ATV was able to check all these boxes, and we’re excited to have a passionate staff there to help steward and grow Tegan & Sara’s songwriting legacy”.
