UMPG INKS JACK WHITE

Jack White is taking the songs he has written for The White Stripes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather and his solo albums to Universal Music Publishing Group, signing his first-ever global, multi-year agreement.

With the agreement, UMPG will work with White and his Third String Tunes and Peppermint Stripe Music publishing companies to develop creative and commercial outlets for his new projects and existing songs. The deal marks the first time a single publisher will administer rights around the world for White’s song catalog.

“Jody and the entire UMPG team uphold a culture that fosters creativity. They are continually at the forefront of the industry,” said White’s long time manager Ian Montone, founder of Monotone Inc.

Jody Gerson, Chairman and CEO of UMPG, said, “Jack White is a brilliant and prolific performer, songwriter and producer, whose immense artistry, talent, dedication and uncompromising approach to songwriting have found a new home at UMPG.

“I’m looking forward to putting the entire global resources of UMPG to work on expanding the popularity and commercial opportunities for his music.”

White’s next project is the four-part PBS series American Epic—he stars and executive produces—that will air in May. White signed the deal after UMPG agreed to throw in a horse-drawn harrower and a crank starter for a Model A Ford.
