US-based independent publisher Songs has signed a worldwide co-publishing deal with Lorde, aka Ella Yelich-O’Connor. The deal encompasses Lorde’s songwriting output to date, including EP ‘The Love Club’ and album ‘Pure Heroine’, plus future work.

Songs A&R boss Ron Perry told CMU: “When all is said and done, Ella Yelich-O’Connor will go down as one of the greatest lyricists of all time. To say that I’m thrilled to work with Ella and her managers, Scott Maclachlan and Tim Youngson, is an incredible understatement”.

Meanwhile the company’s CEO Matt Pincus added: “Ella is a once in a generation songwriter and artist. All of us at Songs believe she is going to be a defining voice in music for many, many years to come. It is a tremendous honour that she has chosen Songs as her partner”.
