Brian Higgins signs to Peermusic

Peermusic has signed songwriter and producer Brian Higgins – best known as part of pop making powerhouse Xenomania – to a global publishing deal, covering his future works.

“I’m delighted to be back working with Brian again”, says Peermusic UK’s Head Of A&R Mike Sault. He signed Higgins to Warner Chappell back in 1997, you see.

“Having someone as influential, innovative and prolific as Brian joining us at Peermusic is a complete honour. He’s the epitome of what a great songwriter should be, and without doubt one of the best writers/producers of his generation, behind some of the greatest moments in UK pop over the last 20 years or so. Most importantly the new music is incredible, and so here’s to the next chapter which we’re super excited for”.

Higgins himself says: “I’m incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to work with Nigel [Elderton, UK MD], Mike and the rest of the wonderful Peermusic team. As I continue moving forward with new projects it’s important that I have a collaborative and supportive team at my side, and I know this new partnership with Peermusic will be just that”.

The full list of artists Higgins has worked with is far too long to include here, but includes Cher, Kylie Minogue, The Sugababes, Girls Aloud, The Saturdays, Bananarama, Pet Shop Boys, Saint Etienne and Sophie Ellis-Bextor.

His latest effort – and the first song released under his Peermusic deal – is ‘Delete It’ by Dopamine:
