James Arthur has a new record deal. The multi-platinum singer-songwriter has signed a co deal with Columbia Records UK and Columbia Records Germany.
James has worked with Columbia Records Germany for the last five years since the release of his number 1 album ‘Back From The Edge’.
Talking about the new deal in a press release James said: “I consider it an honour to be signing to a label with such prestige – Columbia have historically signed iconic artists and musicians, many of which have inspired me along the way, so to be adding my name to a roster that boasts so many legends is a sign of how far I’ve come and is a huge compliment. I’m very grateful to Columbia for wanting to work with me and am extremely excited to write this next chapter of my career with them. I have a feeling it’s going to be some journey!”
Formally signed to the now-defunct Syco Music, James recently dominated the airwaves and charts collaborating with Sigala on ‘Lasting Lover’. The track was No.1 on iTunes and Top 10 on the Official Singles Chart. He is also currently in the Official UK Chart with ‘Train Wreck’, a track written and recorded for his debut album ‘Back From The Edge’, that found a new lease of life via Tik Tok. The track has had an incredible 310 million streams to date.
Columbia UK and Columbia Records Germany will release James’s fourth album in 2021, with a new single being released in March.
Ferdy Unger-Hamilton, President Of Columbia Records UK says: “Columbia Records are really excited to be working with James. He has proved himself to be a brilliant songwriter over the last few years, and we regard ourselves as being really fortunate to get the opportunity to work with him. He has a fantastic album in the pipeline, expect 2021 to be a big one for him!”
