UMPG UNITES SPRINGSTEEN CATALOG

Universal Music Publishing Group has confirmed that it will exclusively administer Bruce Springsteen’s entire catalog as well as future projects. It's the first time a single publisher will represent his entire catalog worldwide.

UMPG will be responsible for developing creative and commercial opportunities for Springsteen’s catalog, which starts with Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. and includes legendary albums such as Born to RunDarkness on the Edge of Town,  Born in the U.S.A.  and The Rising.

“After 40 productive years of working with the leading independents, it is now time for us to centralize Bruce’s publishing,” said Springsteen’s manager, Jon Landau, President of Jon Landau Management. “We are thrilled to be working with Jody Gerson and her team.

“UMPG combines putting the artist first with creating, leading, and managing the incredible changes occurring in the world of publishing. At this point in Bruce’s legendary songwriting career, they are an ideal fit.”

“As an artist,” noted Gerson, UMPG's Chairman and CEO, “his demand for excellence and his requirement for heart and passion in everything that you do is the standard for how we operate every day at UMPG. We are thrilled to put the entire global resources of our company into expanding the popularity of his music and creating exciting new fan experiences.”

To celebrate the signing, the entire crew piled into a 1955 Caddy, drove to Asbury Park and had their fortunes read by Madame Marie.
