Prince Estate Selects Universal to Manage NPG Records Catalog


Universal Music Group will manage Prince’s vault of unreleased music. Billboard reports:

As expected, the Universal Music Group has announced a multi-year agreement with Prince’s estate and NPG Records, granting the major label group exclusive licensing rights to much of the late artist’s catalog of released and unreleased works. Much of the material dates from the latter part of Prince’s career, after he parted ways with Warner Bros. Records in 1996.
