– Welsh singer-songwriter and television host Charlotte Church has signed a $3
million deal with investment fund Power Amp Music to finance the recording of a
new album, the Financial Times reported.

For its investment, Power Amp gets 50%
of gross revenue from Church’s recordings, publishing, merchandise and touring for
an undisclosed period.

"[The deal] provides me with a financial commitment
equivalent to that of a major record company but with a much greater degree of
control and ownership over my career," Church told

Church parted
ways with her former label Sony Music in 2006, after selling 10.5 million
albums worldwide.
