Warner Chappell has signed a new publishing deal with Scissor Sisters covering the on hiatus band’s songs and principle songwriters, Jake Shears and Scott ‘Baby Daddy’ Hoffman.

“Baby Daddy and I are really proud of all the music we’ve created together and couldn’t be happier to have Warner Chappell Music looking after our songs going forward”, says Shears. “The worldwide team have some really awesome and ambitious ideas of how they’ll reinvigorate our catalogue and we can’t wait to see what they do”.

Baby Daddy adds: “The Scissor Sisters songs still connect with so many fans all over the world, and we’re so excited to have found a home with the worldwide acclaim of Warner Chappell Music. We’re stoked to announce that the incredible team at Warner Chappell will be continuing the Scissor Sisters journey along with us”.

Emily Foreman, Creative Manager at Warner Chappell Music UK, also comments: “Scissor Sisters are such an iconic name in dance and pop culture and their early songs still sound as fresh and innovative as they did when they first came out. I’m honoured that we’ll represent these classic records at Warner Chappell Music and I’m looking forward to finding ways to connect their songs with new audiences”.

The band have also recently appointed Fascination Management as their legacy managers. The company’s Peter Loraine says: “It was an honour to be asked by the band to caretake, nurture and develop their business. Their catalogue of music and visuals is first class and has so much potential. I worked with the band during my years at Polydor, so to be reunited professionally is a dream come true”.

With the exception of a charity project in 2017, the band have been pretty much on hiatus since the promo of last album ‘Magic Hour’, which was released in 2012.
