UMG TOYS WITH AEROSMITH'S ATTIC

Aerosmith and UMG have struck a worldwide alliance that encompasses the group’s entire discography, unifying all their recordings for the first time, in advance of their 50th anniversary, coming next year. It also includes merchandise and audio-visual projects. 

In addition to supporting the band’s consolidated catalog, this partnership will also make use of unprecedented access to the storied “Vindaloo Vaults” and personal archives of band members Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Joey Kramer and Brad Whitford, who will help curate their collections of music, photos, video footage, artwork, journals, set lists and memorabilia. Forthcoming releases will offer never-before-seen items and unreleased music.

UMG will also be the home of future music projects, which includes the development, production and distribution of any potential new film, television and other audio-visual content. New projects are expected to be announced shortly.

“Aerosmith’s global success places them in rarefied air among the all-time greatest rock icons," said Sir Lucian Grainge, Chairman & CEO of UMG. "On the band’s 50th anniversary, Aerosmith continues to influence the course of music not only through their iconic catalog but also through film, television and video games and their inimitable style. On a personal note, I couldn’t be prouder that they have chosen UMG as their global partner. We look forward to building upon their incredible legacy and ensuring that their music continues to inspire fans around the world.”

Perry, Aerosmith's co-founder and lead guitarist, commented, It’s been a long road but I’m extremely happy and proud to say on behalf of Aerosmith that we have been able to bring our 50 years of music under one roof by partnering with UMG. It’s something we’ve dreamed about happening for a long time. It's a win for Aerosmith, UMG and ultimately, our fans.”
