LOS ANGELES: The decade-old union between The Rolling Stones and Universal Music Group (UMG), has moved closer with the announcement of a global deal that encompasses the band’s recorded music and audio-visual catalogues. Abigail Parkin  abigail@redcarpetmagazine.co.uk

 

UMG will also be providing archival support, global merchandising and brand management.

The status of both parties as global players has been well-established over the years: The Rolling Stones’ huge  impact on pop culture finely tunes with UMG’s expertise and resources.

Sir Lucian Grainge, chairman & CEO of UMG said, “After a decade of working in partnership together, we are thrilled to expand and extend our relationship with The Rolling Stones.  We look forward to bringing our expertise and passion to bear as we put our global organization to work on behalf of this iconic band who continue to create music and influence culture around the world.”

David Joseph, chairman & CEO, Universal Music UK, added: “The Rolling Stones continue to define rock and roll, they are loved the world over and they are the band who never let up. It’s a privilege to work with them and Joyce Smyth, their exceptional manager.”

Joyce Smyth, The Rolling Stones manager said, “For many years now we’ve had a wonderful partnership with Universal Music and look forward to an even more successful future together.’’

UMG will continue to distribute the band’s celebrated recorded music catalogue globally with future projects and reissues to be released through UMG’s labels and networks around the world.

Bravado, UMG’s brand-management and merchandise arm leads the global provider of consumer, lifestyle and branding services to recording artists and will handle global merchandising rights, retail licensing, brand management and e-commerce on behalf of the band, including their iconic tongue logo, one of the most universally recognized symbols in entertainment.

Bravado’s radar will also identify innovative opportunities for creative collaboration within the worlds of art, fashion, retail, sport, lifestyle and touring merchandise to excite and inspire their millions of fans around the world. 

Recent programs and collections include partnerships with Paris Saint Germain FC, Selfridges, Colette and Zara and newly designed merchandise for their No Filter European Tour.

Eagle Rock, the UMG-owned leading producer and distributor of music programming for broadcast, DVD, Blu-Ray, TV and Digital Media, has expanded its global distribution rights to the band’s extensive long-form audio visual catalogue.

The agreement will see Eagle Rock re-issuing several classic concert films from their archives including: Atlanta (1989); Steel Wheels (1989-90); Voodoo Lounge (1994); Bridges to Babylon (1997-1998); Four Flicks (2002) and Bigger Bang (2005-2006).
