Stormzy has signed a new deal with Warner Music to bring his #Merky record label under the umbrella of the major’s Atlantic UK division.

Announcing the deal on Instagram, the rapper said that it was the “beginning of a new chapter”, adding: “Looking forward to delivering more music, more bodies of work and to start developing and working on new talent on the #Merky roster. Let’s work”.

In a statement, Warner’s recorded music boss Max Lousada said: “Stormzy and #Merky are a cultural force whose music makes everyone listen. Talent, truth, energy and relevance – they represent music at its most powerful. We’re proud to have them in the family”.

The deal extends Stormzy’s existing alliance with the mini-major. Released through #Merky last year, his debut album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ was distributed by Warner’s label services unit ADA.
