“I put everything into my music, and I wanted to make sure these were in good hands as I thought about the next chapter of these songs. I'm proud to partner up with Rene and the team at Influence Media and send a signal that this music has timeless value,” he said. “My music is my art, and these songs represent some of the most precious artwork of my career.”
