THE XX STAYS WITH UMPG
9/24/19

British group The xx have extended their global publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Group following a decade with the company. Over the course of their tenure, the band secured a Mercury Prize win for their debut, which reached #3 on the U.K. charts and was followed by two #1 albums. 

Mark Gale, VP International A&R and Director of A&R at UMPG said: “We originally signed The xx purely on the basis of a set of songs we heard and loved. It’s been extraordinary to see the artist and individuals that they’ve evolved into. They are constantly looking forward and challenging themselves creatively.

"It’s a huge privilege and compliment that after 10 years they continue to trust all of us at Universal Music Publishing with their songs.”
