WaterTower Music is an American record label owned by Time Warner and operates as a division of Warner Bros. Entertainment. It was founded in January 2010 as the successor to both Warner Sunset Records and New Line Records.[1] The label is named after the iconic water tower of Warner Bros. Studios. Like most early film studios, Warner Bros. built a water tower because movie sets were and are still highly flammable, and the nitrate film used in early filmmaking was also extremely flammable.

Housed on the Burbank lot, in the offices occupied by Warner Bros. Records during its heyday in the 1960s, the WaterTower Music team works to discover the most compelling music possible to broaden consumers' awareness of a brand or project on a visceral level. They believe the right music can engage a consumer's imagination in an entirely different way than a commercial or billboard. A truly successful soundtrack is one that inspires fans to invest both in the music itself and in the film, television or interactive content on which it's based.

From comedies to dramas, action adventures and everything in between, the talented and resourceful team at WaterTower Music helps make sure that Warner Bros.' projects sound as good as they look.[2] Projects span From movie studios such as Warner Brothers, Paramount & Universal Pictures, to TV Networks such as: HBO, NBC, ABC, CBS.
