British artist Estelle has announced the launch of her independent label New London Records. The label is in partnership with BMG.
The star said in a statement:
“This is a new and exciting move for me. BMG has been an awesome partner throughout my career, and with New London we plan to continue bridging the gap between soul, pop, London and New York — uniting them through music.”
BMG executive president Richard Blackstone added,
“Estelle has been a valued member of the BMG family as a writer for some time now. She is a deeply passionate artist gifted with a tremendous voice and has music running through her veins. We are thrilled that Estelle has expanded our relationship and entered into a new partnership with BMG Label Services to release her upcoming album.”
Billboard reports that Estelle will release the second (“Vol. 2 Waiting to Exhale,” August) and third volumes (“Vol. 3 How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” October).
