AWAL has signed a worldwide deal with the UK Electronic producer duo, Jungle.
The AWAL recordings deal offers the duo a full range of services, including global marketing, campaign coordination, synch licensing and global distribution.
Josh Lloyd and Tom McFarland of Jungle released their self-titled debut album in 2014.
They went on to sell out London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace as well as the Hollywood Palladium in the US.
Jungle’s global following helped with their rise to success, as they performed on five different continents, headlining as far as Sydney and Moscow, while also winning new fans at festivals such as Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.
Their Mercury Prize-nominated, Gold-certified debut and 2018’s follow-up, For Ever, both entered the UK Top 10. Since then, the two records have amassed 750,000 equivalent album sales, with close to a billion streams.
Jungle are set to release third album Loving In Stereo to a global audience on August 13, 2021.
The album campaign launched on March 23 with the single Keep Moving.
