Mando Diao have signed a new worldwide record deal with BMG, with whom they have had a publishing contract since 2012.

“BMG has been great for me in my songwriting”, says frontman Björn Dixgård. “They have encouraged and shown a great deal of creativity but also have listened to what I was wanting to do. It feels good to work even closer with them on the record”.

The band’s manager Carlos Barth adds: “Mando Diao has always tried to be innovative and try different ways of doing things, and so this cooperation was something that really fit with what we wanted to do and how the industry is changing. BMG has been a good partner and we are glad to be able to work so closely with a team”.

Meanwhile, new BMG Germany MD Dominique Kulling says: “Mando Diao are a true phenomenon. We are very THRILLED to now represent them for both publishing and recordings”.

A new album, Mando Diao’s first since 2014’s ‘Ælita’, is due out later this year.
