Warner Music Group's indie arm ADA Worldwide has inked dBpm Records, the record label founded by Wilco in 2011. The deal includes Wilco front-man Jeff Tweedy’s first all-original solo album, WARM, out today.
Wilco had been affiliated with WMG's Nonesuch label. Headquartered in Chicago, the label has released all of Wilco’s albums since The Whole Love in 2011 including Tweedy’s Sukierae and covers album Together At Last.
"Wilco and dBpm are looking forward to continuing our relationship with WMG,“ says Tweedy. “It’s always nice when you get to keep working with familiar faces."
“We are thrilled to welcome dBpm Records to the ADA family,” says ADA Worldwide President Eliah Seton. “It’s a privilege to contribute in any way to their iconic musical careers and to provide Jeff and Wilco access to global distribution and label services as they take this next step.”
Adds ADA President of A&R/Label Services, Kenny Weagly, “We couldn’t be happier to continue working with Jeff Tweedy and Wilco as part of our new relationship with dBpm Records. The band has a long history with Warner Music Group, and a direct relationship with ADA via their own label seems like the perfect next move.”'
In anticipation of this week’s album drop, Tweedy released the song and video for “I Know What It’s Like,” directed by Mark Greenberg.
