16 April 2024 – Warner Chappell Music (WCM) has entered into an exclusive publishing agreement with Electronic Arts (EA) to administer music across its expansive library, including the world-class sports simulation titles from EA SPORTS to the action, adventure, role-playing video games, and more from EA Entertainment. WCM will also tap its talented pool of songwriters and producers to work on new music projects with EA.

WCM Co-Chair and COO, Carianne Marshall, “Steve [Schnur] and I have known each other for over twenty years and collaborated on countless amazing projects. He and his team are best in class, and it's great to be working together once again to administer their catalog and drive even more opportunities for their songs.”

EA Worldwide Executive and President of Music, Steve Schnur, shared: “Warner Chappell Music is more than just a giant of music publishing; they’re a visionary group of global professionals who understand that video games will play a vital role in the future of music itself. Because Carianne and Guy have believed in EA Music since the very beginning, the administration of our music catalog is now in the best hands possible, and we look forward to the opportunities that this partnership will create for our game soundtracks, and beyond.”

WCM EVP of Global Sync and Media Original Music, Rich Robinson, added: “Video games have long been at the center of pop culture, with many so cinematic in nature that they’re also driving ideas to the big screen. Music has always been fundamental to EA's storytelling, and this partnership opens the doors for us to amplify the incredible scores they already have as well as connect them with our own talented storytellers – our songwriters – to shape future narratives.”
