Representatives for Jess Glynne's record label have confirmed they've parted ways after eight years.

The pop star signed with Atlantic Records in August 2013 and went on release two albums and seven number one singles - including Hold My Hand, Don't Be So Hard on Yourself, and Not Letting Go - during their partnership.

On Wednesday, a representative for Atlantic confirmed to The Sun newspaper that they were no longer working together.

"Jess Glynne and Atlantic Records have parted ways after a hugely successful eight years. This is an exciting period of creative growth and new beginnings for Jess, and Atlantic wishes her all the best," they said in a statement.

Sources told the publication that the Rather Be singer disagreed with record execs about the direction of her career, as she wants to stop producing radio-friendly tracks while they want her to continue making mainstream pop hits.

"There were a series of discussions and everyone was on a different page," the source said. "Jess felt she had earned the right to control the direction of her music.

"It came down to Jess wanting to produce music that resonates with her over churning out radio-friendly hits. She is keen to reset her career and almost start again after taking time out."

The 32-year-old is reportedly in talks with a number of big record labels to find a new deal.

Jess hasn't released any new music since her 2020 festive single This Christmas. She has maintained a low profile ever since she deleted her social media accounts last year.
