Decca Publishing has signed Grammy, Ivor Novello and Golden Globe nominated composer and musician Clint Mansell to a long-term, worldwide publishing deal.
Over the course of the last two decades, Mansell has scored films such as Moon, Requiem For A Dream, Black Swan and High Rise and TV projects including Black Mirror and the recent DC Universe series Titans.
Mansell’s catalog contains more than 650 original copyrights, which have been sampled by more than forty artists to date including A$AP Rocky, Bastille and Paul Oakenfold.
For the first time in his career, Mansell’s entire catalog of musical works and compositions will be published together in its entirety.
This will include both his earliest works as frontman of Pop Will Eat Itself, with whom he released seven albums between 1987 and 1996, including 11 Top 40 Hits in the UK, works published through his own Precision Engineering and his other cinematic, televisual and creative output brought together for the first time.
Mansell’s longstanding partnership with film director Darren Aronofsky began in 1998, with his first original score for Pi, Aronofsky’s feature debut.
This working relationship has seen Mansell create scores for Requiem For A Dream (2000), The Fountain (2006), The Wrestler (2008), Black Swan (2010) and Noah (2014).
In 2009 he provided the score for Duncan Jones’ directorial debut Moon (2009) and more recently for Mute (2017).
He scored Loving Vincent (2017), and the double Emmy-winning San Junipero (2016) episode of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror for Netflix.
He recently scored Titans (2018), a DC Universe web series from DC Comics, now available through Netflix.
“I wanted to find a publisher who shared my vision – of how I work, of why I work, of the projects I want to be involved with and who can support the new spaces I want to explore.”
