Her new single, â€œMost Girls,â€ which she co-wrote, was released last week.
Steinfeld, 20, was recently featured in the critically-acclaimed film â€œThe Edge of Seventeen,â€ for which she received a Golden Globe nomination for best actress in a motion picture â€” comedy or musical, as well as an MTV Movie & TV Award nomination for best actor in a movie.
â€œIâ€™m honored to join the many incredible talents who call Warner/Chappell home, and I know that this team will give me the support I need to express myself musically and continue to grow as a songwriter,â€ Steinfeld said in a statement.Â Warner/Chappell Music Senior VP/Co-Head of A&R Katie Vinten added, â€œHailee is a creative whirlwind, whether itâ€™s in the recording studio, in film, or on stage. The entire Warner/Chappell team is thrilled to have her in the family, and we look forward to collaborating with Hailee to take her musical career to new heights.â€
