BMG signs label & publishing deal with Ladyhawke
New Zealand singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and award-winner Ladyhawke has signed a global label and publishing deal with BMG.
The first release under the deal is the single ‘Guilty Love’, out tomorrow (Friday, March 5).
The song features Broods vocalist Georgia Nott and ushers in a new era for the Ladyhawke project after she featured on PNAU’s summer hit ‘River’.
The publishing deal encompasses her entire back catalogue, including hits such as ‘My Delirium’, ‘Paris Is Burning’ and ‘Magic’.
Ladyhawke said of the signing: “Thrilled to be a part of the BMG family and to be putting new music out into the world with them.
“They’ve been incredibly supportive so I can’t wait to see where we can go together.”
Heath Johns, BMG managing director Australia & New Zealand, commented: “Ladyhawke is an iconic artist and an important voice for New Zealand music on the global stage.
“BMG is super proud to now exclusively represent Pip’s song-writing catalogue, but this deal isn’t about looking back.
“Ladyhawke has crafted some seriously stunning new music and starting with ‘Guilty Love’ we are excited to be working closely with her manager Dan Medland on breaking these vibe-soaked new tunes on an international scale with typical BMG Australia panache”.
Ladyhawke’s 2008 self-titled debut solo album topped New Zealand’s RIANZ Albums chart and was certified Platinum in New Zealand and Gold in Australia and the UK.
The lead single ‘My Delirium’ charted in the top 10 in both Australia and New Zealand.
The album and single also won her two ARIA Awards and six New Zealand Music Awards, including Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Best Female Solo Artist and Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
Her second and third albums, Anxiety and Wild Things, charted in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Scotland.
The act has also been nominated for multiple international awards including Brit Awards, NME Awards and MTV Music Awards.
