DRIVER’S SEAT: As the biggest act affected by WMG’s acquisition of Parlophone—having collectively sold 14.6 million units worldwide on their last two albums—Coldplay is in a sweet position right now, including the ability to choose whether they release future records through Warner Bros. Records or Atlantic. Manager Dave Holmes is accustomed to holding all the cards, having managed to give his clients the upper hand a half decade ago after Guy Hands bought EMI. That’s just one of the numerous provocative tidbits embedded in I.B. Bad’s latest column, which posted this morning. In it, HITS’ industry insider provides revelations about other managers with leverage, including Nate Yetton (The Civil Wars), Christen Greene and David Meinert (The Lumineers), Troy Carter (Lady Gaga) and the team of Chris and Kelly Clancy (Odd Future, Frank Ocean).
