Universal’s Decca Publishing has signed a new worldwide deal to rep the work of Clint Mansell. The deal covers his entire catalogue, from his many soundtrack compositions way back to his early work with Pop Will Eat Itself, as well as future projects.

“I wanted to find a publisher who shared my vision of how I work, of why I work, of the projects I want to be involved with and who can support the new spaces I want to explore”, says Mansell. “Decca’s approach makes sense for the modern world of composition and creativity. The team there have a bespoke understanding of this space, and a unique enthusiasm for it. I’m really excited about what we can achieve together”.

EVP of Decca Publishing, Natasha Baldwin, adds: “We are delighted to welcome Clint Mansell to Decca Publishing. He is a truly unique and unconventional composer with a distinct artistic voice and an unparalleled reputation. It is hugely exciting to be given the opportunity to bring Clint’s impressive catalogue all together and support him and his team to shape the next phase of his narrative as a composer”.

“We share a collective vision for thinking beyond traditional genre boundaries”, she went on, “and for re-defining what it means to be a composer and we are excited to open up new creatives outlets to expose his remarkable talent to new audiences”.

The next new music to arrive from Mansell will be the soundtrack to Carol Morley’s ‘Out Of Blue’, which will be released in cinemas later this year.
