Warner/Chappell Music, the music publishing arm of Warner Music Group, has opened a new recording studio complex at its London offices in Kensington.
The series of studios are available to Warner/Chappell songwriters and producers, as well as those working with them, to use free of charge.
The studios – named The Chappell – have already hosted their first sessions, with a global superstar dropping by to use them last week.
There are a host of A-list writers and artists lined up to use them in the coming weeks.
“Having songwriters and artists being creative in the office every day brings us much closer to what we are about as a business.”
