MIA signs to BMG Chrysalis

By | Published on Monday 24 November 2014


Ms MIA has signed an international deal with BMG Chrysalis UK, the British wing of insatiably acquisitive music rights firm BMG. The publishing contract covers all ‘future compositions’ by the artist and songwriter, real name Mathangi Arulpragasam, who released her latest LP, ‘Matangi’, last year.

Taken aback by the giant-wedding-tent-scale significance of the new alliance, BMG Chrysalis UK EVP Alexi Cory-Smith says: “This is truly a marquee signing. MIA is one of the great leaders and influencers and innovators in contemporary popular culture. We are extremely pleased that she has chosen BMG to represent her future work”.
