Warner Music Australia and Sophie Monk have parted ways. According to her manager David Caplice, the pop singer is about to sign with another major and is soon to be confirmed to appear in a TV series.

Monk first signed to the record company in 2000 as a member of pop group Bardot, winners of the reality TV series "Popstars". The act made chart history in Australia when its debut single "Poison" and self-titled debut album entered the respective singles and albums chart at No. 1 in 2001. The album shifted more than 150,000 copies, according to the label.

However, Monk's solo album "Calendar Girl" did not reach gold status (35,000 units). According to Caplice, Monk asked to be released from her deal after Warner Music Australia chairman/CEO Shaun James announced last month that he would leave his post at the end of August to join free-to-air Ten Network in a sales management position.

Warner executives confirmed Monk's departure from the label but declined to comment further.

In recent months, Warner Music Australia has parted ways with one-time platinum acts the Superjesus and Taxiride, and Tiffani Wood, who was also a member of Bardot.
