Warner Chappell has renewed its publishing deal with Chinese R&B artist David Tao.

“Warner Chappell has always had my back”, says Tao. “I’ve worked with the team for many years and I do enjoy the professional service. The team manages my songs well and I am happy to continue our relationship. Their efforts have meant my time has been freed up to pursue my belief in music, education and film production. Also, I’m really excited about the projects we have worked together, particularly the opportunities to work with writers and artists from different backgrounds and cultures”.

President of Warner Chappell Asia Pacific, Monica Lee, adds: “I’m delighted that David has put his trust in us as always. His evergreen songs have been very influential to the development of Asian music and he’s been absolutely integral to the success of the Mandopop scene. His own artist career has been stellar, he’s the go-to artist for the biggest stars, and he’s always seen the importance of giving something back by nurturing the next generation of talent. It is our pleasure to be a part of his musical journey and we will continue to strive for excellence together”.

Tao plans to release a new album in 2021.
