Mötley Crüe have announced the sale of their entire catalog of music to BMG. The Berlin based music company has acquired the rights to the legendary hard rock band’s entire recorded music catalog. The deal is described on Billboard as the ‘largest single-artist deal’ since BMG Rights Management was launched in 2008.
Mötley Crüe said this in a statement:
“It feels amazing to be collaborating with our new partners at BMG. Their extensive track record of success in rock made them the perfect home to continue preserving and growing our musical legacy, ensuring we always stay at the top.”
The band’s longtime manager Allen Kovac added:
“After working side by side with BMG for well over a decade, the relationship we have developed and success we’ve accomplished over the years made this a very easy transition to entrust with this treasured Rock catalog. Working with BMG in any capacity, whether that’s publishing or records, has always been a great experience.”
The band’s nine studio albums are included in the deal, valued around $150 million.
