DOWNTOWN SOLDIERS ON WITH 1975'S PUBLISHER

Downtown Music Publishing has acquired London-based Good Soldier Songs, which includes the catalogs of The 1975 and Biffy Clyro.

The transaction includes more than 350 works including the songs that will appear on The 1975’s upcoming album, Notes on a Conditional Form. Good Soldier Songs’ rights include music by Billy Lockett, Colouring, Dr Vades and others. Christian Tattersfield, the former CEO of Warner Music UK, founded Good Soldier Songs in 2003.

“With an ethos not unlike Downtown’s, Christian has built an incredible, diverse roster at Good Soldier Songs and we’re ecstatic to add its music to our catalog,” said Roberto Neri, Executive Vice President and Head of European Business Development for Downtown Music. “We’re also excited for The 1975’s highly-anticipated new album and are thrilled to work with the band and their manager, Jamie Oborne.”
