Global Radio’s music division has announced a new deal with Downtown Music Publishing which will see the US-based independent publisher administrate Global’s publishing rights in the US and Canada. Kobalt previously managed Global’s rights in North America.

The publishing side of Global’s music company owns the rights in songs released by the likes of Ellie Goulding, Corinne Bailey Rae and Alicia Keys, as well as a number of TV themes. Confirming the new deal, Downtown’s Justin Kalifowitz told reporters: “Global has developed and attracted some of the brightest song-writing talents in the UK. We are honoured to be chosen as their partner in North America and look forward to working with their fantastic song catalogue”.
