TAME IMPALA RE-UPS WITH SONY/ATV

Sony/ATV Music Publishing has announced the expansion of its agreement with singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Kevin Parker, to cover worldwide representation of his future songs. Parker and his formative music project, Tame Impala, originally signed with Sony/ATV Australia in 2009.

Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Jon Platt said: "(Kevin) is an incredible songwriter whose impressive ascent with Tame Impala makes him one of the premier creators and musicians of the past decade. Kevin’s creative and professional relationship with Damian and the passionate team at Sony/ATV Australia has achieved great success, and we are well positioned globally to provide seamless support for this next dynamic phase of Kevin’s career.”

Sony/ATV MD of Australia Damian Trotter added: “Having represented Kevin Parker in Australia for more than 10 years, I am incredibly proud and excited that Sony/ATV is now extending our publishing agreement with Kevin for the rest of the world. I want to thank Jon Platt for his support, as he has been driving to make this happen from literally his first day on the job. As the sole writer, producer, vocalist and engineer, who also plays every instrument on each of their albums, Kevin Parker is for all intents and purposes Tame Impala. He is a once-in-a-generation artist and I believe he is only just scratching the surface of his potential.”

“I’m super excited to be re-signing with Sony/ATV and extending my relationship with them from Australia to worldwide," Parker stated. "Damian Trotter has become someone I can rely on to take good care of my words and melodies. It’s also an honour to now be working with such a legendary figure in music as Jon Platt,” 

Tame Impala released their fourth studio album The Slow Rush on 2/14 on Modular/Interscope. And Parker is an in-demand producer, collaborating with artists including Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, A$AP Rocky, The Flaming Lips, Mick JaggerKanye West and Travis Scott.
