GEIGER UNDER HIPGNOSIS
4/9/19

Merck Mercuriadis' Hipgnosis Songs has acquired the catalogue of songwriter Teddy Geiger's interest in six Shawn Mendes hits: "Stitches" (six-times platinum), "Treat You Better" (four-times platinum), "Mercy" (three-times platinum), "There's Nothing Holding Me Back" (three-times platinum), "In My Blood" (platinum) and "Lost in Japan" (platinum).

Together, those six songs, which have racked up more than 5b streams at Spotify and Apple Music, have earned 145 Top 10, 83 Top 5 and 23 #1 chart positions globally.

“I consider Teddy Geiger to be amongst the most important contemporary hitmakers," Mercuriadis shared. "Her work with Shawn Mendes has helped him become a global superstar and is the definition of what a great writer and superb artist can do together, to create not only hits, but what will unquestionably be an enduring career for both. It is our greatest pleasure to add these six special songs to our catalogue as they define pop music in the streaming paradigm. We look forward to working with Teddy, [Geiger's manager] Ollie [Hammett] and our friends at Big Deal to make this a winning experience for everyone.”

"It’s been the greatest privilege to be a part of Shawn’s journey, to see first hand his growth as a genius artist and share so many great songs, experiences and memories together," added Geiger. "I’m forever grateful to Shawn and his team for their friendship and belief in my work. These songs mean the world to me and I’m thrilled to welcome Merck and Hipgnosis as a partner in this next chapter of my career."
