Prince To Publish His Own Music Catalog / Cuts Ties With ‘Universal’

Published: Friday 4th Apr 2014 by David

The Belle of St.Mark‘ maestro Prince has announced the arrival of his very own publishing company today, splitting with former publishers ‘Universal Music Publishing.’

Details on his latest move below…

Named NPG Music Publishing, the limited liability company will see Prince publish his own music and currently seeks to place jams from his discography in  “film, television, video games and the commercial realm”, just one month after building the organisation.

Following in the footsteps of The Beatles’ frontman Paul McCartney, the ‘Beautiful Ones’ move marks the first time his material has been controlled independently in more than twenty years, already securing a placement for his music on Fox’s ‘New Girl’ in the February of this year!

    Prince.. The icon.. The musical genius.. The innovator! He should be in full control of his discography, he is truly in a leave of his own! And that performance feat Beyonce at the Grammys is so amazing/memorable!!! It takes a true musical genius (Beyonce) to compliment a musical genius as big as prince and KILL IT!!! Katy Perry, Lorde, Rihanna, Ciara, Lana Del Rey, Sevyn, and a vast majority of the rest of the girls COULD NEVER!!

      It’s unbelievable that you still bring up these pop singers in a Prince post.

        I brought up Prince first and for most. The other starlets were in reference to the beyonce performance posted above.

    Prince has ALWAYS been one to do things on his own terms – and he continues to this very day.

    Well done.

    Beyonce was not necessary in this post tho, i can’t at people saying she is a musical genius like Prince, really sad.
