Chart-topping singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Labrinth has signed an exclusive songwriting agreement with BMG.
Since he first emerged back in 2010, Labrinth has enjoyed five top ten UK singles including Earthquake, Jealous and his number one hit with Emeli Sande, Beneath Your Beautiful.
The artist’s debut album Electronic Earth reached number two and enjoyed more than 40 weeks in the album charts.
As well as his own solo material, Labrinth has written and produced for a number of big names including Rihanna, Emeli Sande, Kygo, The Weeknd, Plan B and Mike Posner. He has also collaborated on multiple occasions with Tinie Tempah, having produced and co-written the rapper’s groundbreaking debut single Pass Out.
The track reached number one on the charts and won awards at both the 2011 BRIT and Ivor Novello Awards.
Several months later, the pair collaborated on Tinie Tempah’s Frisky – also co-written by Labrinth – which debuted at number two in the UK charts.
Commenting, Kate Sweetsur, BMG UK vice-president of creative, said: ‘We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Labrinth to BMG. The deal was very much a joint effort with Shani Gonzales in BMG’s LA office. Working internationally across everything we do is really important to us as a company.’
‘Labrinth’s track record speaks for itself. He’s firmly established himself as a chart-topping artist, a highly sought after collaborator and one of the most exciting songwriters of his generation. Being able to add him to the BMG roster demonstrates our continued desire and ability to work with the best creative talent in the music industry today.’
Labrinth’s second album, Take Me To The Truth, is set for release later this year.
