BMG

BMG’s US division has announced it has renewed and extended its worldwide deal with Jeff Tweedy, he of Wilco. Tweedy previously had a publishing deal with Bug Music, the independent publisher acquired by BMG just over a year ago. Under the new deal BMG will represent the entire Wilco catalogue as well as Tweedy’s other works.

Confirming the deal, BMG’s EVP Of Client Services & Creative David Hirshland told CMU: “Jeff Tweedy and Wilco continue to push the artistic boundaries of rock and roll while maintaining an ever-expanding and fiercely loyal following. We are pleased to have represented them for many years and now look forward to a strong future which includes every piece of every song in the Wilco catalogue”.

Tweedy himself added: “I’ve had a great working relationship with Bug Music for many years now, so their move to BMG made mine a pretty easy one. Having the vast majority of my catalogue in one place now, in the hands of people who have worked diligently on my behalf, is extremely fortunate and I look forward to continuing our creative relationship for many years to come”.
