Bruce Springsteen has signed with Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) to exclusively administer his entire catalog of songs and future projects, the first time a single publisher will represent his entire catalog worldwide. With the agreement, UMPG will be responsible for developing creative and commercial opportunities for Springsteen’s song catalog.
Jon Landau, President of Jon Landau Management, said, “We are thrilled to be working with Jody Gerson and her team. After forty productive years of working with the leading independents, it is now time for us to centralize Bruce’s publishing. UMPG combines putting the artist first with creating, leading, and managing the incredible changes occurring in the world of publishing. At this point in Bruce’s legendary songwriting career, they are an ideal fit.”
Jody Gerson, UMPG’s Chairman/CEO, said, “During a career spanning more than 40 years, Bruce Springsteen has amassed one of the most iconic catalogs of songs in the history of music. As an artist, his demand for excellence and his requirement for heart and passion in everything that you do is the standard for how we operate every day at UMPG. We are thrilled to put the entire global resources of our company into expanding the popularity of his music and creating exciting new fan experiences.”
