on 22nd August 2019
Hello all — I’m very excited to announce a new music publishing deal, and to be part of the Mutefamily. I’ve been an admirer of Mute and Daniel Miller for a long time, loving both their musical and artist-friendly aesthetic. So I’m very pleased to now be published by Mute Song, led by David McGinnis and his team. It feels like the right fit for me and an exciting home for both my recorded music and my other stage musical ambitions going forwards. So, a new adventure and I hope this just means you get to hear more music! Colin
