In a statement, the executive vice president of Republic Records, Charlie Walk, described Steinfeld as talented and committed. 

"The moment that we met Hailee we found her commitment to music inspiring. She has the vision, natural talent and dedication to compete at the highest level. We are thrilled to be a part of her musical journey," Walk said in the press release. 

"Hailee is a multi-talented artist and among her many gifts, her voice is both unique and undeniable. It's exciting to have her join the Republic family," Republic Record's co-founder and chief executive Monte Lipman.

According to reports, Steinfeld is already working on her debut album. She is working with such producers and production teams as Captain Cuts, Harvey Mason, The Futuristics, Mattman & Robin from MXM, according to reports in Billboard

The producers in question have experience working with a variety of different groups so it's uncertain what sort of music Steinfeld will be working on. Production team Captain Cuts, which consists of Ben Berger, Ryan McMahon and Ryan Rabin, have previously worked with such artists as Tove Lo, Marina and the Diamonds and The Knocks. Grammy Award winner Harvey Mason has collaborated with the likes of Azealia Banks, Elton John and Chris Brown.
