Oscars: 'Once' duo signs deal with Warner/Chappell Music

Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, the duo who picked up an Oscar last Sunday for "Falling Slowly" from the movie Once, have signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music. Songs from the film’s soundtrack, plus compositions written for Hansard’s band, The Frames, and his album with Irglova, The Swell Season, will now all be administered by the publishing arm of Warner Music Group. No doubt the duo will also see a significant label deal soon, but for now, Hansard and The Frames are still under contract with Epitaph Records’ sister label ANTI (home to Tom Waits). One report today incorrectly stated that "neither the duo nor the Frames have recording contracts." Says a rep for ANTI: "I don’t know that anything has changed in their status with the label. The Frames remain ANTI recording artists."

    “The Frames remain anti-recording artists”. What is that supposed to mean? Didn’t they record their music years ago? I don’t get it.

    I think they mean ANTI is the name of the record label

    I was overjoyed when this duo took home the Oscar. I bought the soundtrack and just love all the songs, especially Falling Slowly.

    The only Oscar I cared about this year was the award for best original song. I was watching the awards in Vegas just to make sure these two took home the gold, and couldn’t help but clap and cheer in the middle of the bar when their names were announced. Once is an incredible piece of work and these two deserve all the awards and praise that comes their way!
