Newell will work directly with Glee executive music producer Adam Anders who has an imprint called Deep Well Records which will produce Newell’s debut album.
Said Anders of his new acquisition, “While working with Alex on Glee, I immediately realized how broad and unique his talent was and knew that he would be a great addition to the Deep Well/Atlantic Records family.”
“Alex is such an undeniable talent with one of the most unique and distinct voices I’ve heard in a long time,” added Atlantic Records CEO and chairman Craig Kallman.
As for what Newell thinks of the new development? “I am thrilled to join this new family and take another step in my career,” he said in a statement. “Singing is my passion and to now have the opportunity to make my own music is a dream come true! I can’t thank my new Atlantic and Deep Well family enough for welcoming me with open arms.”
