Kobalt​ has signed American pop band The Shadowboxers to a worldwide agreement, including publishing administration with artist development firm Villa 40 for all of The Shadowboxers’ future works and back catalogue.

Said Kobalt General Manager Nashville Jesse Willoughby, “We’re really excited to welcome The Shadowboxers to Kobalt. They’re some of the most talented guys making pop music and are thrilled to help take their careers to the next level.”

Discovered by Justin Timberlake and signed to his Villa 40 artist development company, The Shadowboxers recently completed the opening support slot on the first US leg and European leg of his Man of The Woods Tour.

APOLLO, the band’s debut EP, was co-produced by Timberlake and Israeli writer/producer, K-Kov. The lead track, “Runaway,” was featured with live performances on The Today Show and The Talk. Their latest single, “Telephone,” was released today and is co-written by Timberlake. An accompanying video features an modernized ode to the three-part harmonies of the Bee Gees.

“We feel lucky to be working alongside the Kobalt teams in Nashville, LA, New York and London to continue to write with some of the best writers they represent,” says Matt Lipkins, Scott Tyler and Adam Hoffman of The Shadowboxers. “We are grateful for the opportunities Kobalt is giving us to help get our music in front of a wider audience.”
