Nina Nesbitt Inks Worldwide Administration Deal With Kobalt Music
The announcement comes just three months after Nesbitt released her sophomore album, The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change, which peaked at No. 28 on the Independent Albums chart.
Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt has signed a worldwide administration agreement with Kobalt Music, the company confirmed Wednesday (May 8). The deal includes publishing, administration, creative services and synch for Nesbitt’s future works.
The announcement comes three months after Nesbitt released her sophomore album, The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change, which peaked at No. 28 on the Independent Albums chart.
The budding pop star — known for her smooth vocals and moving lyrics — has kept herself busy as of late, embarking on a North America headlining tour from Feb. 23 through March 24 before making her late-night television debut on The Late Show just days afterward.
The 24-year-old Nesbitt released her 2013 debut album Peroxide with Island Records but was eventually dropped from the label, despite the record entering the U.K. Album Charts at No. 1 in Scotland and No. 11 in the rest of the U.K. In 2016, she signed a global artist services deal with indie label Cooking Vinyl, which oversees artists like The Prodigy and Richard Ashcroft.
Nesbitt shared photos on Instagram announcing the news Tuesday with the caption “time to write some new songs.”
UPDATE: An earlier version of this article inaccurately stated the deal included Nesbitt’s catalog.
