Cooking Vinyl Signs Newly Re-Formed UB40 And Röyksopp

Bookmark and Share

Cooking Vinyl has started 2014 with a spring in its step, having signed a clutch of international artists including Röyksopp and the newly re-formed UB40 fronted by Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue. Additionally, CV Australia has signed Calling All Cars and Kate Miller-Heidke.

UB40's founders and frontmen Ali Campbell, Astro and keyboardist Mickey Virtue have signed a two album worldwide record services deal with Cooking Vinyl. It was recently announced that the trio will record and perform as UB40, and are currently in the studio recording fresh material for a new album due in Q4 2014. Responsible for selling over 70 million records, UB40's initial line-up lasted for 30 years until the 2008 departure of Campbell and Virtue, with Astro leaving what remained of the band in November 2013.

Made up of Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland, electronic music duo Röyksopp have topped the charts in several countries over the course of their 16-year career, including notching up four consecutive #1 albums in their native Norway. The band are busy rehearsing for their upcoming tour Do It Again, where they will team up with long-time friend Robyn (dates can be found at http://www.doitaga.in/), as well as working on their new album which is scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2014. They have signed to Cooking Vinyl on a services deal that covers multiple territories including the UK & Eire and various countries in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and South America.

Melbourne three-piece Calling All Cars will release their third album Raise the People via a worldwide license deal with Cooking Vinyl Australia. The album will be released internationally on the 7th March, and has been mixed by Grammy Award winning producer Tchad Blake (Pearl Jam, The Black Keys, Peter Gabriel) and produced by Steve Schram (Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes) and Tom Larkin (Shihad, Young and Restless). Singles Werewolves and Standing In The Ocean both entered high rotation on Australia's major youth radio network Triple J, and the band has supported AC/DC, Queens Of The Stone Age and Foo Fighters on recent Australian tours.

Also joining CV Australia's roster is Kate Miller-Heidke, who has signed a worldwide ex. US services deal. Following the big label successes of her previous three records, Miller-Heidke has gone independent with her fourth album O Vertigo! after seven years with Sony. The album, to be released on March 14th, is funded entirely by her fans via Pledge Music in a record-breaking three days. It features guest vocalists including folk sensation Passenger, Australian hip-hop artist Drapht; and Megan Washington. The first single Drama (featuring Drapht) and is set for release on February 14.

Both artists will embark on Australian tours in March before coming to the UK in April.

MD of Cooking Vinyl Martin Goldschmidt said: "I'm thrilled to see Ali Campbell join with his brothers Astro and Mickey in order to record and tour as UB40, and look forward to a new album from them. Added to this, we get to work with the fantastic Röyksopp whilst Stu and Leigh continue to sign quality local and international acts to CV Australia, meaning that 2014 is already shaping up to be an amazing year for Cooking Vinyl."

Ali Campbell of UB40 added: "We're looking forward to partnering with such a strong label to create some great Reggae music for fans."

Stu Harvey of CV Australia said: "Kate Miller-Heidke and Calling All Cars are both compelling artists and we have two brilliant albums ready to go. For Kate, she's embarking on a completely different venture this time round, having written so much of her record and enjoying complete control over how it came together. We're also really looking forward to taking the guys from CAC's music to an international audience."
