Neil/UMPG

I AM UMPG, I SAID: Neil Diamond has inked an exclusive pub deal with UMPG, it was  announced today by UMG head Lucian Grainge and UMPG prexy North America Evan Lamberg. The pact brings all of Diamond’s catalog and his new album, Melody Road—streeting 10/21 on Steve Barnett’s Capitol—to the pubco. Grainge expressed “immense pride” at acquiring Diamond’s body of work, vowing to “maximize opportunities for him and his music on a global scale.” Lamberg praised the Grammy-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s massive talent and achievements, adding thanks to Barnett and team as well as Diamond’s wife and manager, Katie McNeil Diamond, whom he hailed as “invaluable partners” in advancing the new music and catalog. After the announcement, Diamond was presented with a giant spleef made from a strain that the UMPG Dispensary had named in his honor, Cherry Cherry Kush. (10/13a)
