Estelle Teams Up With BMG to Start New London Records
Ready to take music into her own hands, British R&B singer/rapper Estelle has teamed up with BMG, the international music conglomerate dedicated to “providing state-of-the-art, comprehensive and transparent management of music rights,” to launch New London Records.
The independent music label will be home to volumes two and three of the Estelle’s three-part EP series, ‘Love & Happiness,’ which first released in June.
Excited to have the sassy soulstress on board with BMG, the company’s executive vice president, Richard Blackstone said, “Estelle has been a valued member of the BMG family as a writer for some time now.” He continued, “She is a deeply passionate artist gifted with a tremendous voice and has music running through her veins. We are thrilled that Estelle has expanded our relationship and entered into a new partnership with BMG Label Services to release her upcoming album.”
After making a mainstream name for herself in 2008 with her Kanye-featuring single ‘American Boy,’ Estelle is ready for the next chapter in her career. “This is a new and exciting move for me,” Estelle said in a press release. “BMG has been an awesome partner throughout my career, and with New London we plan to continue bridging the gap between soul, pop, London and New York — uniting them through music.”
