Only a few days after her 17th birthday, Lorde has officially signed with Songs Music Publishing after a lengthy bidding war between major labels like Sony and Universal. The deal, which was announced earlier this evening, includes The Love Club EP, her recent album, Pure Heroine, and all future recordings. CEO and founder of Songs, Matt Pincus, is “incredibly proud to be [Lorde’s] publisher,” which comes as no surprise, as “[they] think she’s a once-in-a-generation type artist.” Oh, and what did the young Lorde make from the deal? A cool $2.5 million. Best birthday ever.
