Prince Forms His Own Music Publishing Firm, Drops Universal

first_imgPrince has announced his departure from Universal Music Publishing, and the formation of his own publishing group, NPG Music Publishing. The move will allow Prince to fully control his own music, so that the storied musician can share his catalog through a number of different media outlets.While the official details have yet to be released, Prince will make available those songs that are “fit 4 eternal publication.” The group was founded by Artists for Artists, a collective that supports artists and fosters emerging talent.NPG Music was involved with Prince’s appearance on New Girl, and the single “FALLINLOVE2NITE” that debuted during the episode. They are searching for more media appearances, such as television shows, video games, commercials, etc.With an artist as beloved and with a catalog as extensive as Prince’s, the formation of NPG Music Publishing should be a success. So far, however, the details are spotty. You can check out their website, which is currently just the above, somewhat-creepy picture of Prince, and a contact e-mail address.-David Melamed (@DMelamz)last_img
