NATE ALBERT TO CAPITOL

New Capitol Music Group President Ashley Newton has made his first hire at the Tower, bringing in Nate Albert as EVP A&R for Capitol Records.

Albert spent the last seven years at Republic, most recently as their SVP A&R, where he was involved in the signings of The Weeknd and Phantogram, oversaw the release of the soundtrack for Les Misérables and was integrally involved in releases from Florence + The Machine, The Lonely Island and others.

A founding member of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Albert will sign and develop artists for the company as well as oversee recording projects for new and established Capitol artists. He will be working in the Tower.

“Nate has impeccable taste, great creative instincts and a winning demeanor -- qualities so important in working with artists and attracting the right talent to the label,” Newton said. “His background as both an experienced A&R executive—who discovered and nurtured the industry’s current biggest global breakthrough artist, The Weeknd—and as a successful musician who understands the aspirations of artists, make him a tremendously valuable asset to Capitol.”

Albert said working at Capitol is a dream come true. “(It's) a label that not only represents a deep and iconic legacy of great music and artistry, but is so clearly in the midst of an exciting new ascendance centered on artist development,” he said.

Albert co-founded The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at the age of 13, left the band in 2000 to attend Brown University and started working for Republic in 2006 as an A&R consultant and then as VP A&R in 2008.
