Warner Chappell Music has struck a global publishing agreement with singer-songwriter Teddy Swims.

“Lose Control” has been on the Billboard Hot 100 list for more than 30 weeks and is presently at number one. In September 2023, he released his debut studio album, I’ve Tried Everything But Therapy (Part 1), on WCM’s sister label Warner Records. It peaked in the top 25 of the Billboard 200 list.

“Thrilled to be teaming up with Warner Chappell as my publisher,” Teddy Swims says of the deal. “Songwriting has always been central to my identity as an artist, and it will remain so. It’s my therapy, and having a team behind me who understands this means everything to me. I’m very happy to keep it in-house with Warner Music Group and within the family with the best organization on the earth.”

Teddy Swims (born Jaten Dimsdale) has recorded music and toured the world since his debut in 2019. With a distinct sound that combines R&B, soul, country, and pop, he began his career performing with a number of Atlanta-based bands. He later gained a following on YouTube for his song of Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You.”

Swims obtained a record deal with Warner Records in 2019 and began releasing his own original music, including a series of EPs from 2021 to 2022. His third EP, Tough Love, earned his first appearance on the Billboard 200 chart and featured singles like “Love For A Minute” and “911.” The Georgia native emerged to mainstream stardom in 2023, when his breakout hit “Lose Control” topped the charts in the United States and reached the top ten in several other nations.

“Teddy has stayed true to himself every step of the way since we first met in 2020, and he is now one of the most important new artists in music,” adds WCM, SVP A&R Katy Wolaver and VP, A&R David Goldsen. “His timeless voice, incredible knack for songs, and unrelenting work ethic make him such an exciting songwriter for us, and we’re so happy he’s chosen Warner Chappell as his publishing home.”
