Universal Music Publishing Group has signed Dave Grohl to an exclusive worldwide co-publishing deal for future works.

The Foo Fighters frontman was previously signed to EMI Music Publishing, which retains rights to the group's catalog.

Foo Fighters are in pre-production on their next RCA studio album, which will likely be a double set. The album will be the follow-up to 2002's "One by One," which debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 1.1 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It was named best rock album in February at the 46th Grammy Awards.

UMPG worldwide president David Renzer comments, "Dave Grohl has long been at the forefront of rock, whether as a member of Nirvana and now leading the hugely successful Foo Fighters, as well as his various other projects. We are honored that he has entrusted UMPG to be his worldwide publisher."

Grohl is managed by John Silva of SAM/Silva Artist Management.
