    Dominican Republic-born, Florida-reared artist George Lewis, Jr., aka Twin Shadow, has signed to Warner Bros. Records.

    The Los Angeles-based artist will issue his third album next spring. Twin Shadow will then embark on a headline tour behind the album starting in March 2015.

    He posted this about the news, noting that he realized he needed a partner to get his music out, which makes total sense. WBR has the resources to make sure his music is heard.

    Here is what he said about the signing:

    "When I last wrote, I shared the news that we had to postpone our tour. With a huge sigh of relief I can finally reveal a few more details about what is happening in the Twin Shadow camp and also share new tour dates with you.

    "Towards the end of the recording of the third Twin Shadow album, I came into a strong feeling, a place of creative change from which I'd like to give you an uncompromised experience at every turn. In order to push in the right direction I had to put the brakes on the tour, the planned album release, and reconsider where Twin Shadow was headed. With a bit of perspective I came to realize that I was going to need help to pull off the vision for this next album.

    "I'm excited to announce that I've found a group of like minded people at Warner Bros. Records to help me accomplish this goal. In the interest of progress and adventure I look forward to the new relationship (and hopefully a coffee with Prince).

    "The new Twin Shadow album will be released next year and there will be new music coming soon."

    Wu-Tang Clan also namechecked Prince when their WBR signing was announced. Prince – he is the great unifier! All the great acts signing with the label are impressed by the company's association with Prince!
