The Veronicas will release their next album through Sony Music.
The Veronicas, Lisa and Jessica Origilasso, first launched their music in 2005. The debut album ‘The Secret Life Of…’ peaked at no. 2 on the Australian chart and sold 4 times Platinum. The album featured five hit singles, three of which made the Top 10.
The second album ‘Hook Me Up’ was released in 2007. Again the album reached no 2 on the Australian charts and sold a further two times platinum for the twin sisters.
Sony Music Chairman and CEO Denis Handlin says the girls are “outstanding Australian artists.” “The Veronicas are outstanding Australian artists, and I am thrilled to have them join with the Sony Music family,” he said in a statement. “We are very excited to bring their new album to the fans later this year and to be a part of this next phase in their exciting career.”
Jess Origilasso of The Veronicas is excited about the move to Sony. “The opportunity to work with such a successful team that understand and support our freedom as the artists we are, and who have embraced us to help lift us higher than we’ve known in the past, is nothing short of a privilege and blessing. With Denis Handlin and the Sony Music team worldwide, we finally feel at home to create music and a career without limits,” she said. The Veronicas have been in the studio working on their third album for release later this year.
