Hipgnosis Songs Buys Tom DeLonge’s Blink-182 Copyright Interests

Richard Smirke, writing for Billboard:

Music IP investment company Hipgnosis Songs has begun 2020 in much the same way that it spent the past 18 months — by making a major catalog acquisition.

This time it’s 157 songs by former Blink-182 singer and songwriter Tom DeLonge. Terms were not disclosed for the deal, which sees Hipgnosis picking up 100% of DeLonge’s copyright interests on the first six Blink-182 studio albums, spanning from 1995’s independently released Cheshire Cat to 2011’s Neighborhoods. The musician left the pop-punk trio in 2015.
