NEW YORK (AP) — Paul Simon is the most modern icon to promote his neatly off catalog of songs.
Sony Music Publishing announced Wednesday that it has got Simon’s catalog, which contains six a long time of song, from his time in Simon & Garfunkel to his solo occupation. Monetary exiguous print of the deal were no longer announced.
Bob Dylan and Shakira just currently sold their elephantine catalogs, whereas Stevie Nicks sold a majority of her catalog and Neil Young sold 50% of his.
Simon has won 16 Grammy Awards. His neatly-identified songs consist of “Bridge Over Timid Water,” “The Boxer,” “The Sound of Silence,” “Mrs. Robinson,” “Homeward Coast,” “I am a Rock” and “50 Systems to Leave Your Lover,” among others.
“I’m cheerful to grasp Sony Music Publishing be the custodian of my songs for the approaching a long time. I started my occupation at Columbia/Sony Files and it feels enjoy a pure extension to be working with the Publishing aspect as neatly,” 79-one year-extinct Simon stated in a assertion.
Sony Music Publishing also represents catalogs by Motown, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, Queen, Ashford & Simpson, Leonard Cohen and more.
