The worldwide agreement covers publishing administration for all of Rudimental’s future works, starting with their latest single, Sun Comes Up. Sony/ATV has the Rudimental catalogue.
Sam Winwood, SVP of creative at Kobalt, said: “Rudimental is not only one of the most exciting and important bands to come out of the UK in recent years but they have also helped discover and launch a whole new generation of great UK artists and continue to do so.”
