Noah Goldstein signed an exclusive publishing agreement with Concord Music Publishing, the company announced on Thursday (April 11). The deal will include the Grammy-winning multi-hyphenate’s entire catalog as well as all future works.

“We are so excited to have Noah join our roster, said Jeremy Yohai, Concord’s head of creative/A&R in a statement. “He has proven himself to be a creative force in the industry, as a writer, producer, engineer and A&R.”

Goldstein’s discography includes multiple hits by Kanye West, including “Black Skinhead,” “New Slaves” and “Ultralight Beam.” He has also engineered records for the likes of Rihanna, M.I.A. and Nas, and won a Grammy for his work on Arcade Fire’s 2010 LP The Suburbs.

Currently senior vp A&R at Columbia Records, Goldstein previously spent eight years as a producer, A&R, engineer and touring audio director for West and his G.O.O.D. Music label.

In addition to the publishing deal, Goldstein is joining forces with Concord to form a new joint venture to sign both established and developing artists and songwriters. The joint venture’s first signee is Minneapolis-based songwriter/producer Psymun (born Simon Christensen).
