Glass Animals’ lead singer, songwriter and producer Dave Bayley has signed an exclusive, global publishing agreement Universal Music Publishing Group.

UMPG chief Jody Gerson said she’s a fan of the Polydor/Republic act. “I am especially delighted to work closely with UMPG’s global creative teams to amplify Dave Bayley’s talents as a writer and producer, not only for his band but also for other artists who inspire and excite him,” she said.

The UMPG A&R team recently coordinated Bayley’s co-writing collab with Florence Welch that resulted in her new single “My Love.”

Bayley, whose band is managed by September Management, “explained why he went the UMPG route. There’s so much I want to learn and so much music I want to make in so many different areas—from Glass Animals records, to pop songwriting, to experimental sound design, to scoring.
