Glen Cashes In
Forget Radio City... forget the Grammys... this is what's gonna buy Glen a big new house in Ballsbridge:
Warner Chappell Music has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with singer/songwriter duo Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, winners of this year's "Best Original Song" Oscar for "Falling Slowly" from the film "Once".Full story at Hypebot.
Under the agreement, Warner/Chappell Music will administer Hansard's and Irglova's catalog of work, including songs written by Hansard as a member of the band The Frames, music from Hansard's and Irglova's debut album, "The Swell Season" and songs from the "Once" soundtrack, as well as their future compositions.
I'm saying this a lot lately, but congrats to Glen and Marketa. Sometimes decades of perseverance does pay off.
