Sony Music Entertainment Australia has announced the signing of Australian music royalty Kate Ceberano with an exclusive recording deal as she releases her new single Hold On from her 28th studio album coming next year.
Ceberano returns to Sony Music, having previously released her album Kensal Road with the company in 2013.
On returning to Sony Music Entertainment, Ceberano said: “In a time where nothing is as it was, it’s comforting to come back to a familiar stable with champions like Denis Handlin and Robert Rigby. And certainly with the attention being focused more on Australian music, it’s a comfort to be with one the biggest and best record companies. So grateful for their support during this time and their ongoing loyalty to Australian music.”
“I have always had tremendous respect for Kate as she is a pioneer in the Australian music industry”, said Denis Handlin, chairman and CEO of Sony Music Entertainment Australia and New Zealand. “We are thrilled to welcome Kate back to the Sony Music family and we look forward to working with her for this new chapter of her career.”
Kate will release Sweet Inspiration, the 28th album of her music career, on February 5th 2021. The album, which Ceberano has produced, features two new original songs Hold On – available now – written by Ceberano during the Melbourne pandemic lockdown, and the album’s title track Sweet Inspiration, written in collaboration with veteran Sony Music recording artist Rick Price.
In the mid-80s Kate Ceberano came blazing onto the Australian music scene as the front person for pop funk band I’m Talking and went on to notch up five consecutive hit singles and a Platinum album debut. Ceberano’s music career spans four decades with seven Platinum and seven Gold albums to her name, and multiple ARIA Awards.
