Editors have signed a global publishing contract with Strictly Confidential Music, it was confirmed this morning. They are the biggest UK singing to date for the Brussels-based indie publisher, which is a sister company to the [PIAS] Group.
The publisher’s top man Pierre Mossiat told CMU: “This is an exciting time for us, dealing with such a high calibre band puts us right on track for the kind of growth we’ve been working towards. We hope Editors will be the first of many artists with such an international profile to be lured to the shores of Strictly Confidential. It’s nice to see that our development policy has allowed our collaboration with a band of that level. Thomas De Mot, our head of A&R and International, has been instrumental in the deal”.
Speaking for the band, their manager Rob Whitaker added: “Strictly Confidential came to Editors as fans of the band, with a deal and set of creative ideas that recognised and matched the artists’ vision and integrity. Editors already have a strong relationship with [PIAS] Records and are now looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Thomas, Pierre, and the rest of the Strictly Confidential team”.
