British indie-soul label Dome has inked a licensing deal to release R&B artist Rahsaan Patterson's album "After Hours" in the United Kingdom and Europe. The set by the New York-born artist will be out April 26. Patterson was formerly with MCA.

Dome's deal is with Artistry Music Group, which is headed by Patterson's manager, Lucille Hunt. They plan to release the album in the United States later this year. Dome managing director Peter Robinson tells Billboard.biz that Patterson will undertake promotion in the United Kingdom, France, Holland, Germany and Sweden for two weeks beginning April 20.

Following Dome's worldwide signing last year of U.S. singer/songwriter Brenda Russell, the label will release her new studio album "Between the Sun and the Moon" May 24 in the United Kingdom and Europe. It will appear in the United States in July on Dome/Rendezvous.

Rendezvous Entertainment is a Los Angeles-based company headed by Capitol artist Dave Koz, ex-Broadcast Architecture executive Frank Cody and marketing executive Hyman Katz.
