Producer, musician and songwriter T Bone Burnett has signed an agreement with Capitol Music Group (CMG) to bring his newly formed Electromagnetic Recordings imprint to the company, according to Burnett and CMG Chairman & CEO Steve Barnett.

Electromagnetic Recordings will be marketed and distributed through CMG.

He will also serve as a producer and A&R resource for the CMG labels, and as a liaison for the company to the music, film and television communities.

Among the initial projects slated for Burnett and/or Electromagnetic Recordings as part of the new agreement with CMG are The Basement Tapes…Continued from Bob Dylan; work with Gregg Allman on the follow-up project to the 2011 Burnett-produced Low Country Blues; and the debut album from duo Striking Matches on CMG’s Nashville Imprint, I.R.S. Nashville. Burnett is also working to complete an album of songs that Cowboy Jack Clement recorded in Nashville during the final months of his life; the project will include John Prine, Vince Gill and Emmylou Harris, and will be the first release on I.R.S.
