Martin Garrix has led a tumultuous relationship with music distributors over the past 12 months, but the ink has dried on an agreement that he thinks might make for a light at the end of the tunnel. The Dutch talent has announced that he has signed a worldwide distribution deal with Sony Music.
Garrix’s inaugural release through Sony will be his Bebe Rexha collaboration, “In The Name Of Love,” which will come out on July 29th. Where Garrix’s post-Spinnin’ months afforded him relatively more creative liberties, however, partnering with one of the “big four” labels will surely place added pressure on him to ascribe to a limited style.
In an official release, Garrix said:
I’m super excited to be working with such a hungry and passionate team at Sony Music Entertainment. Their forward thinking approach to streaming and incredible roster of talented artists combined with their passion and understanding for my vision of the future of my music made this a no brainer.
The full impacts of Martin Garrix‘s global deal with Sony Music remain to be seen, but in the meantime, look out for his Sony debut, “In The Name Of Love” featuring Bebe Rexha, to release the day after tomorrow.
