Independent publisher Imagem has signed a worldwide agreement with Chris Rea which will cover his post-2002 catalogue, including new album ‘Santo Spirito Blues’.

Imagem UK MD Tim Smith told CMU: “It’s not often you get the chance to work with a genuine songwriting legend which is why I’m overjoyed that Chris has chosen Imagem as his publisher moving forward. Apart from his ability to write great songs as heard on ‘Santo Spirito Blues’, Chris is an innovator in the way he wants to deliver his music to his fans. It’s a joy to work with somebody who is so open to new ideas”.

Rea’s manager John Knowles added: “We looked at a number of publishers for this new album but felt that Imagem’s creative approach to marketing and their ideas of how to maximize revenue for the back catalogue put them in a different league”.
