Sony bought the rights to all Paul Simon songs
American musician Paul Simon, known for his solo work and participation in the duo Simon and Garfunkel, announced the transfer of the rights to all his music to Sony Music Publishing. No details of the deal were reported, but it is known that Sony received the rights to all of Simon’s work from the very beginning of his career.
In his public address, the musician said that he was very pleased that Sony would “guard” his music. Simon noted that his creative path has long been associated with Columbia/Sony Records.
Sony Music Publishing considered Paul Simon’s trust “an incredible honor”.
Recall that at the end of last year, Bob Dylan sold all the songs to Universal Music, and in early March of this year, David Crosby of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young sold his music to the Iconic Artists Group, noting that he “can no longer work”, and streaming “stole all the money”.
