Mark Ronson has extended his arrangement with EMI Music Publishing in a new long-term global deal.

The British-born solo artist, DJ and producer won a best male artist BRIT award earlier this year in recognition of his album "Version" (Columbia).

Ronson, who is based in New York, has signed a long-term agreement with EMI Music Publishing to represent his existing catalog as well as future projects. He originally signed with the company in Jan. 2006.

Although "Version" was an album of covers, Ronson's songwriting credits include work for Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, Christina Aguilera and Nas. He also won a best producer Grammy for his work on Winehouse's "Back To Black" (Island) and released a previous album of original material, "Here Comes The Fuzz", on Warner Music Group's Elektra label in 2003.

"Mark is one of the most multi-talented creators working in the industry today," says EMI Publishing U.K. president Guy Moot in a statement. "As well as being an accomplished producer and performer, his song-writing shows a rare ability to connect with music fans across a breadth of different genres."

Ronson recently supported Jay-Z on a U.K. tour and he has completed production duties on the new Kaiser Chiefs album "Off With Their Heads", released Oct. 13 on B-Unique/Polydor in the U.K. and via Universal in the U.S. a day later.
