Jelly Roll extends his partnership with BMG, teaming up with Republic Records as they enter a worldwide partnership for the star’s next album.

Jelly Roll is on a roll, extending his current partnership with BMG music publishing and its subsidiaries BBR Music Group (BBRMG) and their imprint, Stoney Creek Records. The star is releasing his next album with Republic Records as they enter a worldwide deal with BMG.

The freshly promoted BMG President of Frontline Recordings for North America, Jon Loba, announced the news alongside Republic Records Founder & Chairman Monte Lipman. The two emphasized that the alliance between the two labels is focused on maximizing Jelly Roll’s impact across multiple genres, expanding marketing into new territories. Republic Records and BMG are set to release the singer-songwriter’s next album later this year.

“Jelly Roll embodies artistry and independence. His authenticity is the key to his success. He continually uses his platform to not only captivate audiences with his music but also to uplift communities,” shares Loba. “As an artist, he is a true trailblazer; as a human being, he has left a legacy of both talent and kindness, winning over fans all around the world. We are proud of everything we have accomplished together and look forward to achieving even more success in the future.”

“I couldn’t have accomplished what we’ve done with ‘Whitsitt Chapel’ and all that’s happened in the last year without the support and belief I’ve had from Thomas Coesfeld, Jon Loba, and the rest of the team at BBR,” says Jelly Roll. “Being able to now also work with Republic, Monte and his team — I’ve never been more inspired musically and I am looking forward to releasing this new music with great partners.”

“Jelly Roll is a global icon who’s rewritten the rule book and continues to smash traditional boundaries, all on his own terms. His strength, determination, and creative vision is that of legends. We’re honored to join his strategic partnership with Stoney Creek Records, BMG, and trusted hitman and consigliere John Meneilly,” adds Monte Lipman.

Jelly Roll is set to premiere his new song, “I Am Not OK,” on June 12 — the first single from his forthcoming album. That project follows his debut country album, Whitsitt Chapel, the biggest country debut album in Billboard chart history, with multiple No. 1 hits across both country and rock charts.
