Universal Music’s Interscope Geffen A&M division has extended its contract with producer and songwriter Benny Blanco. The deal will see him continue to work with the major through his own labels, Mad Love Records and Friends Keep Secrets, which he launched in 2014.

Chair of Interscope Geffen A&M, John Janick, says of the news: “Benny Blanco is without a doubt one of the most sought after hit makers in contemporary music who has amazing taste and a gift for identifying emerging talent. We are THRILLED that he has decided to call Interscope his home well into the future”.

“Benny also has an almost divine ability to bring out the best in his collaborators, a track record virtually unmatched by anyone else his age, and he has achieved it all with the kind of humility and self-deprecation that is rare in this industry”, he continues. “We are proud to have him as a key player on our team of the best record-makers in the business. Benny is a giant part of our future”.

Blanco himself adds: “It’s been so easy working with these guys when developing artists can often feel so hard. I couldn’t have a picked a better team of creative minds to work with. I’m really proud to be part of this legendary label and hope that I can make serious contributions to the legacy of Interscope over the coming years”.
