Alesha Dixon has inked a long-term music publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing U.K.
Dixon, previously one third of defunct pop act Mis-Teeq, enjoyed a revival of fame after winning the BBC series “Strictly Come Dancing” in December 2007.
She will release her debut solo album “The Alesha Show” on Nov. 24 in the U.K. on the Atlantic imprint Asylum U.K. It features co-writing credits by songwriters who have penned hits for Rihanna (Thaddis “Kuk” Harrell), Chris Brown (Oak), Gabriella Cilmi (Xenomania) and Duffy (Steve Booker).
Lead single “The Boy Does Nothing” is now available digitally. It will be released physically on Nov. 10.
Sony/ATV managing director Rak Sanghvi said in a statement: “Alesha is an incredible artist, very talented but also professional and extremely disciplined. Her songwriting talent is another string to her bow that few people were aware of.
“The album is a major priority for her record label and we’re thrilled she chose to find her new home with us”.
