Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, the duo who picked up an Oscar last Sunday for “Falling Slowly” from the movie Once, have signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music. Songs from the film’s soundtrack, plus compositions written for Hansard’s band, The Frames, and his album with Irglova, The Swell Season, will now all be administered by the publishing arm of Warner Music Group. No doubt the duo will also see a significant label deal soon, but for now, Hansard and The Frames are still under contract with Epitaph Records’ sister label ANTI (home to Tom Waits). One report today incorrectly stated that “neither the duo nor the Frames have recording contracts.” Says a rep for ANTI: “I don’t know that anything has changed in their status with the label. The Frames remain ANTI recording artists.”
