BMG Chrysalis to launch Darin internationally

We've got the news that Darin is currently in Berlin to sign with a new record company called BMG Chrysalis, a branch of BMG Rights Management (which has some of the best worldwide recognised artists signed like, Kylie Minogue, Gorillaz, Bruno Mars, Evanescence). The aim of this new label is to launch Darin in Europe, US and Asia, hopefully with the new album coming next year.
Here's the translated article from which explains the matter in details.

BMG Chrysalis keeps expanding, both globally and locally. BMG Chrysalis Scandinavia's latest signing is Darin.

With several chart-topping, platinum discs and music awards (like a Grammy Award for the Year Best Song, a Rockbjörn as Best Male Artist and NRJ Award for Best Nordic Song), Darin is one of the most successful artists in the 2000s.

But Darin is not only famous as an artist, but also as a talented songwriter. Recently he has not only written to himself but also to others. He has, among others, worked with songwriters and producers such as Max Martin, RedOne, Jörgen Elofsson, Arnthor Birgisson, Quiz & Larossi, Paddy Dalton, Bilal Hajji and Billy Mann and others. Darin has among other things written songs for artists such as Shane Ward, V Factory (top 40 Billboard Pop Songs), Sasha Lee, David Lindgren and Amanda Fondell (All This Way , which topped Sweden's Official Singles Chart). His own songs are titled Lovekiller, Breathing Your Love, Insanity and the latest released single Nobody Knows - which sold platinum, entering the top 10 on the radio list, topping the iTunes list and designating "Week smash hit" on both NRJ and RixFM.

I think we are going from strength to strength in the sign entries we do here at BMG Chrysalis Scandinavia, comments Sanken Sandqvist, CEO BMG Chrysalis Scandinavia. Darin is just further proof of this.

- We are so proud and excited that Darin chose BMG Chrysalis that its publishing partners and colleagues around the world are "thrilled" to have access to Darin's amazing songwriting.

I look forward to working with BMG, says Darin Zanyar himself. I think they will fill a large and important role in my life as a songwriter, both in Europe and the U.S..

-  We are more than proud to welcome with Darin one of Sweden's most successful artists, writes Thomas Scherer, SVP International Repertoire Services, BMG International in a press release.

- Darin is not only an amazing pop artist but also a very talented writer for contemporary music in different genres. We are really looking forward to bring his success as songwriter and artist on the next level in Europe, Asia and the US.

Right now Darin is taking part in TV shows Så Mycket Bättre (TV4) and Tack För Musiken with Niklas Strömstedt (SVT), both of which will be broadcast in the autumn. Currently, Darin is working on his next studio album which will be released in Sweden next year.

The time is about to come. Darin will release his music worldwide and will get the recognition he deserves. Let's cross our fingers!
