Girl In Red Signs New Record Deal With Columbia Records

Girl In Red has signed a new record deal with Columbia Records. The Norwegian artist, whose real name is Marie Ulven, had previously released songs through AWAL (Artists Without A Label), a company that provides independent musicians with an alternative to working with a traditional record label.

Ulven has signed with Columbia for her future releases, following the success of her April 2021 debut album ‘If I Could Make It Go Quiet.’ Although neither Columbia Records nor Girl In Red have officially announced the agreement at the time of writing, the label confirmed the news to Variety on 15th February.

Ulven confirmed that she was working on new Girl In Red tracks when she spoke to NME at Reading Festival in August.

“I’m already working on new stuff, I’m really excited to see what’s going to happen,” she said, before reiterating that she isn’t interested in releasing singles at the moment.

“I still don’t think singles are that interesting. I honestly don’t even know at this point,” Ulven continued. “Whatever comes to mind, happens. I’m not going to set any parameters of what I do and don’t like. I’m just sitting by the keyboard, making some tunes and some weird sounds”.

“It’s not gonna be metal and it’s not gonna be bedroom pop, but it’s gonna be Girl In Red. Even this last record, I don’t even know what that is.”
