Fresh off their Oscar win for original song, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova have signed a music publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music, the music publishing arm of Warner Music Group.

Warner/Chappell will administer Hansard and Irglova's catalog of work, including songs written by Hansard as a member of the Frames; music from the duo's debut album, "The Swell Season"; and songs from the "Once" soundtrack, as well as their future compositions. They won the Oscar for "Falling Slowly."

Neither the duo, which has been booked as the Swell Season, nor the Frames have recording contracts. Hansard and Irglova will be touring the U.S. from late April through mid-June.
