As part of their ongoing joint venture, Transgressive Publishing and Warner Chappell have signed rapper Loyle Carner to a worldwide publishing deal. He released his debut single through the Transgressive record label in 2015, so get ready for lots of talk about him coming home.

“This feels like a beautiful homecoming”, say Transgressive co-founder Toby L and A&R Manager Mike Harounoff in a joint statement. “Transgressive had the great pleasure of releasing Loyle Carner’s first single five years ago and we have watched on with pride as he’s gone on to take over the country and further afield with his deeply affecting and powerful songs. With a landmark third album in the works, our reunion feels like perfect timing”.

“Feels like I’ve come home”, adds Carner. “Transgressive has always had a special place in my heart, and with the added power of Warner Chappell it feels like the right move at the right time”.

Carner’s last album, ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’, was released last year.
