Kobalt Label Services (KLS) has struck an exclusive deal to be the official worldwide label services partner (excluding the territories of Germany, Switzerland and Austria, which will be released by Membran) for the highly anticipated new album by renowned artist, producer and composer Dave Stewart.
The album is due for release on September 30 on Stewart’s own label, Weapons of Mass Entertainment (WME) via KLS. The first single entitled, “Every Single Night” featuring Martina McBride, impacts radio in the U.S. on August 13th. KLS will market and distribute globally through its wholly-owned global digital platform and network of physical distribution partners.
“I’ve had a really great relationship with Kobalt for over five years and it seemed natural to me when they started KLS, to continue working with such a great company.”
Stewart is already a long-time, worldwide Kobalt client in the music publishing area and this year also tapped Kobalt’s neighbouring rights division to represent his entire repertoire throughout the world.
“As an entrepreneur and pioneer of innovation himself, Dave has been a long-time supporter and valued client of Kobalt’s alternative model. We’re extremely proud to further extend our already successful relationship with him to be his official label services partner on this exciting new album,” said Richard Sanders, President of Kobalt Music Group and Chairman of KLS.
