Odd Future.... Records ????




After months of being courted by the music industry’s biggest bosses, word on the street is Odd Future are staying independent with major backing. I hear the ink ain’t dry but Odd Future Records will sign withRED Distribution/Sony. All acts under one umbrella with the same creative freedom they have now. When pressed for confirmation, manager Chris Clancy sent this statement below.
“It’s based on getting the distribution deal we’ve always envisioned that allows the group to “sign  themselves” to their own company and keep their masters. They will have 100% creative control of all aspects of their music, art, and release schedule with no 3rd party participation in outside business. Freedom and ownership was the whole point. Red and Sony know that its in everyone’s best interest to maintain the group’s authenticity and control. They built it, they deserve it. There’s no cheesy hooks or fluorescent liquor product placements in the works..  It’s about to be fun.. and different.. “

UPDATE: We started working on this blog post awhile ago. Since then the deal is now official and It was rumored to be worth about 2.5 million dollars. Congrats to Odd Future ! Here's some recent footage of the crew on Big Boy's Neighborhood Radio show
