Sony/ATV Music Publishing has signed a global publishing deal with songwriter and producer Freddy Wexler.
Wexler is behind hits including Marshmello and Halsey’s Be Kind and Stuck with U, by Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande.
Sony/ATV chairman and CEO Jon Platt said, “I remember when Freddy signed his first publishing deal as an ambitious 19-year-old and have watched his incredible work ethic continue to earn him well-deserved success. As a songwriter, Freddy has a special ability to nourish long-lasting relationships while making great music, and I’m excited about our reunion at Sony/ATV.”

Wexler said: "My career started with EMI in 2006. To be returning to that company and having grown up with the executives I'm now working with is a really special feeling. Jon, Amanda, Thomas and the whole Sony/ATV family have been super supportive, and I can't wait to build something special together”
