Warner Music has acquired the existing recordings catalogue of producer David Guetta, as well as agreeing a new deal to cover his future works, continuing their longstanding partnership.

“I’m super excited about the new music I’m working on”, says Guetta. “And even more excited that I have started to play all this new music live to my fans again and they are loving it. This is the right time to renew my creative partnership with my trusted team at Warner Music. This deal is about having the best people around me to ensure I can keep innovating with exciting new projects, while also working my extensive catalogue and continuing to build my career”.

“A lot of people approached us to express interest in David’s catalogue”, says his manager Jean-Charles Carré. “We decided to continue our partnership with Warner because they have a knowledge of and passion for David’s music, with a global team that’s constantly working to place it in new contexts. We’re super-excited about some of the deals they’re striking with new partners and their expansion into new territories. This is about proactively working David’s catalogue and new music together”.

Commenting for Warner, the major’s CEO of Recorded Music, Max Lousada, says: “It’s rare for an artist to not only define a genre, but transform it. David has been doing that for over two decades – igniting worldwide audiences and influencing whole generations of talent. He continues to have an extraordinary impact on the evolution of dance music, while innovating and collaborating with new voices in dynamic ways. For all he’s achieved so far, there’s so much great music, creativity, and originality still to come. All of us at Warner are very happy to expand our partnership with this global icon”.

I think it’s fair to say that everyone’s very excited. And two decades into his career, Guetta is still incredibly prolific. So far this year, he’s already released eight new singles with a variety of collaborators, including Joel Corry and Little Mix. His first single under his shiny new Warner agreement will arrive next month.
