Ed’s classical composer older brother Matt Sheeran has signed a new global publishing deal with BMG. The new partnership will also see him contribute music to the BMG Production Music catalogue, you know, just for giggles.

“I saw three different publishing companies that were all really good, but BMG was really exceptional”, says Sheeran of his new business partner. “It wasn’t a difficult decision. It definitely felt like the right place to go”.

BMG A&R exec Hugo Turquet adds: “We are extremely honoured that Matt Sheeran picked BMG as his publishing partner for his words and compositions. BMG is able to give him the environment where he can explore his creativity across production music and commercial music under one roof. There’s no doubt that he will find a great home here”.

Among the compositions BMG will look after for Sheeran will be his collaborations with his brother and Andrea Bocelli. The first is ‘Perfect Symphony’, a reworking of Ed’s song ‘Perfect’. The more recent, the song ‘Amo Soltano Te’, appears on Bocelli’s latest album ‘Si’.
