CLAIRO PACKS HER "BAGS" FOR UMPG

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Clairo has signed an exclusive global publishing agreement with Jody Gerson's UMPG.

A viral success story, 22-year-old Claire Cottrill burst onto the scene in 2017 with the lo-fi favorite “Pretty Girl,” which generated more than 74m YouTube views and became a platinum-certified hit. Clairo's 2019 debut full-length, Immunity, featured the hits “Bags” and "Sofia.” The latter, one of TikTok’s most popular songs, was her first single to chart on the pop Top 100. 

Clairo's sophomore album, Sling, co-produced by Jack Antonoff, will be released on 7/16 via FADER/Republic

Said UMPG Chairman and CEO Gerson, “I remember the first time I heard Carole King’s Tapestry. I also remember the first time I heard Carly Simon’s No Secrets and Joni Mitchell’s Blue. I get the same feeling today when I listen to Clairo’s music. I am so personally proud to represent her and to give her all the support she needs from our global UMPG family.”

Clairo said: “Thank you so much to Jody for believing in me but also believing in this record. I’m so grateful for her honesty, care and ability to make everyone feel comfortable while they develop as artists. Her attention to detail and to her craft is what makes her an unstoppable force—and someone that I know will be there for me for years to come.”
