Australian singer and guitarist Orianthi has signed an exclusive record deal with independent Italian rock label, Frontiers Music Srl, and will release a new album for 2020.
Expected this spring (Southern Hemisphere), this will be Orianthi’s first new studio album in seven years and her first new music as a solo artist in six years.
Her first single will also be released in the coming weeks.
Orianthi’s first major solo artist success, as a singer-songwriter and guitarist, was with the Geffen Records release of “According To You,” which is now RIAA-Certified Platinum® and has over 17 million streams on Spotify.
Orianthi said she was thrilled about the new chapter with Frontiers.
“Their passion and enthusiasm for music is such a great reminder of why I love creating music,” she said.
“I couldn’t be more excited to release my upcoming album with them.”
Frontiers president Serafino Perugino said he was honoured to have her on the label.
“Since we first heard talk that she was working on new music, we knew we had to be involved.
“She is at the forefront of new, meaningful talent in the current rock scene and we look forward to unleashing her music to her fans and the rest of the world.”
Her music’s ability to transcend time has been made clear with it’s recent resurgence on TikTok.
There are over 83 million views on the “According to You” hashtag making it a viral trend that is introducing Gen Z to Orianthi for the first time.
Career-long fans are used to seeing her playing arenas with rock royalty and global superstars like Michael Jackson, Carlos Santana, Carrie Underwood, Alice Cooper, and more.
In addition to her album release with Frontiers this fall, she also has a signature acoustic guitar being released in partnership with Gibson Guitars that will be revealed later this year.
