“Hannah and Tim are two of the finest songwriters Australia has produced,” says Mushroom’s head of A&R.
Middle Kids seem pretty stoked on their continuing partnership with Mushroom Music Publishing, having now extended it to cover their worldwide publishing rights.
It comes as the Sydney band gear up to release their third studio album, Faith Crisis Pt 1, on February 16 via EMI. So far they’ve released three singles from it: Bootleg Firecracker, Highlands and Dramamine.
In a press release, frontwoman Hannah Joy said of Middle Kids’ new deal with Mushroom: “Tim and I are really thankful and excited to be extending our relationship with Mushroom. We have loved working with Linda [Bosidis, managing director], Erol [Yurdagul, head of A&R and creative], Jules [McGruther, Creative Director] and the team since 2017 and are looking forward to what the future holds.”
In a statement of his own, Yurdagul shared the excitement: “We’ve been lucky enough to work with Middle Kids for the last six years. Throughout that time, we’ve seen the band continue to grow creatively and build a stunning discography along the way – which is only strengthened by the upcoming release of their new album, Faith Crisis Pt 1.
“Hannah and Tim [Fitz, bass] are two of the finest songwriters Australia has produced and we are delighted to extend our partnership with them, in which we will also now represent them for the world. I can’t wait for you all to hear their upcoming release.”
Also on the calendar is the film Christmess, which will mark Joy’s feature film debut as an actress. It’s set to hit cinemas on November 30, with the first trailer arriving last month.
