UMPG signs Anna Of The North to global publishing deal
Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG), a leading global publishing company, today announced that Norwegian singer-songwriter Anna Of The North has been signed to a global publishing deal.
Today, Anna of the North has premiered brand new track ‘Leaning On Myself’, her first taste of new music since critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Lovers’. Having sold out worldwide shows and amassed over 140 million streams, Anna headlines London’s Village Underground on March 25th before beginning her US tour in April.
‘Leaning On Myself’ marks a clean break from the past as much as it explores the unique way with melancholic, alternative pop that is unmistakably Anna of the North’s own. From the shimmering, Scandinavian electronica of her debut followed a period in LA, collaborations with the likes of Tyler, the Creator, and the musical and emotional transitions that are evoked in raw but assertive style on ‘Leaning On Myself’.
All of which has led Anna of the North – at times, entirely by accident - to where she finds herself in 2019. That rare songwriter who strikes an emotional chord regardless of continent, collaborator or genre. A pop star who has perhaps always been hiding in plain sight. And a fearless young woman ultimately ‘Leaning On Myself’.
