    Multi-Platinum Producer Andrew Watt Kicks Off Fall With Two High-Profile Projects

    Multi-Platinum Producer Andrew Watt Kicks Off Fall With Two High-Profile Projects

    In demand and multi-platinum selling music producer, Andrew Watt is gearing up for yet another busy fall 2022.

    The Grammy-winning hit-maker has co-written and produced the highly anticipated new album from legendary rock icon, Ozzy Osbourne, Patient Number 9.   The album’s title track, also co-written and produced by Watt, and featuring legendary guitarist Jeff Beck, was a major summer hit for Osbourne, topping Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.  Other high profile features on the album include Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, Mike McCready and Zakk Wylde.

    The Osbourne project comes on the heels of yet another red hot release from Watt.   The highly buzzed about and incredibly well received collaboration from Britney Spears and Elton John “Hold Me Closer,” was co-written and co-produced by Watt, and the track made its debut at No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart this past week.  Having amassed a wide array of critical praise, the track has “already outtpaced the chart peak of John’s prior Hot 100 smash, ‘Cold Heart,’” stated earlier this week by Billboard.

    2022 has been Watt’s strongest year yet as one of the music industry’s most sought after hit-makers.  After producing the entirety of Eddie Vedder’s solo release Earthling, in February, he recently landed two genre-bending hits on the Hot 100 in The Kid LAROI’s “Thousand Miles” and Ed Sheeran and Lil Baby’s “2step.” A co-writer and co-producer on both, the former debuted at No. 15 and is expected to appear on LAROI’s debut studio album, while the latter is a remixed version of the track that appeared on Sheeran’s 2021 full-length, =.   Watt was also credited as a co-produced and co-writer on “Wrapped Around Your Finger” from Post Malone’s latest album, Twelve Carat Toothache, which released in June. Recently, Watt was presented the prestigious Song of the Year award for his work on Justin Bieber’s 2021 top-selling, No. 1 single, “Peaches,” at the 2022 BMI R&B Hip-Hop Awards. Coming up, Watt will once again have the honor of joining Eddie Vedder on stage at the Ohana Festival this October as part of his all-star side project The Earthlings. The group also has newly scheduled October dates in Paso Robles and Las Vegas.

    About Andrew Watt

    Andrew Watt is a Grammy-winning music producer, having collaborated with a wide variety of A-list acts including Justin Bieber, Elton John, Miley Cyrus, Mick Jagger, Selena Gomez, Smokey Robinson, Bruno Mars, Sam Smith, Juice Wrld, Halsey, Nile Rodgers, Ellie Goulding, Khalid, Slash, The Chainsmokers, Blink 182, Bebe Rexha, Tom Morello, Florida Georgia Line, Duff McKagan, 5 Seconds of Summer, Taylor Hawkins and Chad Smith to name a few.  Also an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, some of Watt’s production credits include Cardi B.’s groundbreaking 2019 album, Invasion of Privacy, which took home the Best Rap Album Grammy Award in 2019, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s smash global hit “Senorita,” as well as Lana Del Rey’s “Doin Time” which topped the Billboard charts at No 1.

    In 2021, Watt took home his first Grammy Award for “Producer of the Year” at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards, for his work on Ozzy Osbourne’s Ordinary Man, Miley Cyrus’ Plastic Hearts, both of which he executive-produced, Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia, which took home the Grammy that year for Best Pop Vocal Album, and Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding, which was nominated for Album of the Year.  His genre-transcending talent as a producer entices artists of all kinds but it is his laid-back charm that keeps them coming back – as friends, and as collaborators. His versatility as a songwriter, producer and all-around musician have made him a bona-fide hit-maker reminiscent of legends way beyond his time.
