Sony/ATV has signed Jamie Cullum to one of those global publishing deals everyone’s talking about.

“Whilst I have had a long and interesting journey as a songwriter, I do feel like I’m entering a new phase in the body of work I’m creating”, says Cullum. “I know and respect the team at Sony/ATV and I’m excited to explore with them the possibilities of where we can use my songs not only within my own recorded output but also for other artists, and in film, theatre, computer games and beyond”.

Sony/ATV UK’s co-MDs David Ventura and Tim Major add: “Jamie is a class act in every way – as a songwriter, a musician, a voice and as a person. We’re absolutely THRILLED that he has chosen to work with us on this exciting next phase of his career”.

Fran Malyan, Sony/ATV’s SVP Catalogue, chips in: “I’ve worked with Jamie from the beginning of his amazing career, so I’m more than THRILLED that he’s returning to his original home. His new album is a masterpiece full of brand new songs that sound like standards”.

Oh yes, Cullum signed his first publishing deal with EMI Music Publishing in 2003. That company was then absorbed by Sony/ATV, of course. So I guess it’s sort of a return to where he started. If you squint a bit.
