The deal comes on the heels of Daniel’s resounding success with his second solo album, “FutureNever,” which not only dominated the charts but also clinched the title of ARIA’s highest-selling new Australian album of 2022.

This feat marked a significant milestone in Australian music, with no other local album achieving such heights in the past five years.

From “Straight Lines” to “The Greatest View” and “Ana’s Song,” Daniel’s timeless compositions have become anthems for music lovers around the world.

While “FutureNever” immediately falls under this new deal, fans can anticipate a treasure trove of hits reverting to BMG in 2025.

For Daniel, this collaboration with BMG represents a deeply personal and pivotal moment in his career. He shares, “There is nothing without a heartbeat that I value more than my songwriting catalogue. Bringing my life’s work as a composer to BMG signifies the level of faith I have in this company and their people.”

This partnership isn’t a spur-of-the-moment decision. In 2021, BMG spearheaded the Spotify Original Podcast ‘Who Is Daniel Johns?’, a resounding success that held the top spot in Australia for five consecutive weeks.

BMG’s visionary approach also gave birth to the immersive exhibition ‘Past, Present and FutureNever,’ a groundbreaking endeavour that earned accolades and showcased Daniel’s impact on the music scene.

As Jodie Feld, BMG Senior Creative Director for Australia & New Zealand, puts it, “Daniel is the most ARIA-awarded artist of all time, a Grammy and Emmy-winning composer, and has won the APRA Songwriter of the Year award a record three times.”

In an industry where legacy meets innovation, the Daniel Johns-BMG partnership promises to redefine the future of music.
