Johnny Marr has signed a new worldwide record deal with BMG, adding to his existing publishing contract with the company.

“I’m very pleased to be working with the people at BMG on this new chapter”, says he. “It’s a good feeling”.

BMG’s UK President Of Repertoire & Marketing UK, Alistair Norbury, adds: “BMG have proudly represented Johnny Marr as a songwriter for many years, including publishing his three consecutive top ten solo albums. The fact that he has decided to expand and deepen his relationship with BMG shows how well our holistic, artist-centric approach works. We are delighted to be the releasing partner for this outstanding new body of work”.

Currently working on his new studio album, Marr will play a run of UK shows in September, including a headline date at London’s Electric Ballroom on 23 Sep and a support slot with The Courteeners at Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground on 25 Sep. He’s also been announced as the main support act on The Killers’ 2022 US tour.
