Songwriting powerhouse Dianne Warren has signed a new global publishing and recording deal with BMG. So that’s nice.

Under the deal, the company will administer her full catalogue, outside North America, and release her upcoming debut album as an artist in her own right.

“I’m THRILLED with my new deal at BMG”, says Warren. “I love the BMG team. They have hit the ground running! There is so much already happening that I know this year is going to be amazing. To say I’ve never felt so much enthusiasm and excitement is an understatement. It’s great to have a team behind me like this. This is just the beginning of a fantastic journey filled with hits!”

BMG’s LA EVP Of Repertoire & Marketing, Thomas Scherer, adds: “Diane is one in a million. She is exactly what a global publisher like BMG wants and needs. Her catalogue is full of evergreen titles written 100% by herself, a catalogue of beautiful and unreleased treasures, to pitch to artists around the world and for sync at film, TV, and commercials. Every day she is writing new smash hit songs. The entire publishing team at BMG is proud and honoured to be at service for the one and only Diane Warren”.

Of the album, Scherer’s New York counterpart John Loeffler also comments: “A world-renowned songwriter, with honours in every imaginable category, Diane has never actually placed her own name on the cover of an album before! Featuring a ‘who’s who’ of a-list artists collaborating and performing her new songs, this album is the break-through record she so richly deserves. Fans will remember these songs forever and we are THRILLED to be part of this historic release”.

I’m out of breath just reading these quotes.
