Musical artists whose publishing catalogs have commanded big bucks

In recent years, there’s been a massive spike in legendary musicians selling off the publishing rights to their most iconic songs to firms like Hipgnosis Songs and Primary Wave Music. Whether it’s because they’re tired of managing their extensive catalogs or are looking for new streams of revenue, it’s become a bonafide trend among artists like Bob Dylan, Lindsey Buckingham, and Neil Young. Sometimes, it isn’t the choice of the artist, but instead their label or heirs — which has resulted in some serious disputes between labels and musicians. Flip through the gallery below for a look at the artists whose catalogs have sold for seriously big bucks, ranging from Colombian artist Shakira’s dance hits to the work of reggae legend Bob Marley.

Leon Russell

Known for writing alongside artists like Elton John, Leon Russell sold the music publishing rights and future master recording income from his hit-laden catalog to Primary Wave in 2019.


In early 2021, hip-shaking Colombian sensation Shakira sold 100 percent of her stake in her catalog of music, which includes chart-topping hits like “Whenever, Wherever” and “Hips Don’t Lie,” to publishing firm Hipgnosis for an undisclosed sum. Considering Shakira’s chart success, though, it’s likely that this was a multi-million dollar coup.

Stevie Nicks

Fleetwood Mac frontwoman and legendary solo artist Stevie Nicks made headlines in late 2020 when she sold 80 percent of the publishing rights to her music catalog to music publisher Primary Wave. Valued at $100 million, the catalog includes Nicks’s most iconic tracks, including “Dreams,” “Rhiannon,” and “Edge of Seventeen.”

Bob Dylan

In arguably the most blockbuster catalog sale in music history, Bob Dylan transferred the publishing rights to his 600-plus songs to Universal Music Group in 2020. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the value of the catalog, which includes Dylan classics like “The Hurricane” and “Blowin’ In The Wind,” has been estimated by experts at more than $300 million.

Mick Fleetwood

In what the label described as its largest single acquisition in two years, Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood sold the entirety of his catalog’s publishing rights to BMG in early 2020. The catalog includes more than 300 tracks, and the label will receive 100 percent of future royalties for Fleetwood Mac classics like “The Chain.”

Neil Young

Wanting to retain a bit more control of his life’s work than some artists, Neil Young sold the rights to his extensive song catalog to Hipgnosis in 2020 in a multi-million dollar deal. The company now controls half of the copyright — and income — from the catalog, which includes more than 1,100 original compositions.

Richie Sambora

One half of legendary ‘80s duo Bon Jovi, guitarist Richie Sambora was one of the first artists to sell their catalogs in 2020. In a deal with Music Mogul, Sambora sold his stake in hits like “Livin’ On A Prayer” and “It’s My Life,” co-written by the artist and his bandmate Jon Bon Jovi, for an undisclosed sum. The entire catalog totaled 186 tracks.

Lindsey Buckingham

Just like his Fleetwood Mac bandmates Mick Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks, legendary guitarist Lindsey Buckingham sold the entirety of his catalog to Hipgnosis in a major 2020 deal. In addition to his published works, Buckingham’s deal with Hipgnosis also affords the company 50 percent of the artist’s future works.

The Beach Boys

Ahead of the band’s 60th anniversary, surf-rock pioneers The Beach Boys inked a deal with Iconic Music Group to sell controlling interest of their intellectual property in February 2021. The terms of the deal, which provides the band’s members and their heirs with a continued interest in The Beach Boys’ future royalties, were not disclosed.

Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders

Pretenders frontwoman and ‘80s rock legend Chrissie Hynde sold her entire stake in her publishing catalog to Hipgnosis in 2021 for an undisclosed sum. The 164-song catalog, which includes hits like “Message of Love” and “Talk of the Town,” includes all 11 of the Pretenders’ studio albums, including 2021’s Hate For Sale.

Barry Manilow

Crooner Barry Manilow transferred the recording royalties to his entire catalog to booming publishing firm Hipgnosis in August 2020, for an undisclosed sum. Considering that Manilow has charted 50 Top-40 singles in his career, it’s likely that he scored a pretty penny in the deal, which includes 917 Manilow-penned tracks.

Jack Antonoff

In 2019, mega-producer and artist Jack Antonoff was one of the first major artists to sell his catalog to Hipgnosis Songs, which was little more than a year old at the time of the blockbuster deal. For an undisclosed sum, Hipgnosis acquired nearly 200 songs from Antonoff, who has penned hits for Taylor Swift, Lorde, and Lana Del Rey. He also has his own work, from bands like Fun. and Bleachers.

Mark Ronson

Known for his work with artists like Amy Winehouse, Hipgnosis Songs acquired a 70 percent in British producer Mark Ronson’s catalog in April 2020. The catalog includes Winehouse hits like “Back to Black,” along with his smash-hit collaboration with Bruno Mars, “Uptown Funk.”

Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love

Decades after her husband and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain died by suicide in 1994, widow Courtney Love pioneered the sale of major catalogs. When Cobain died, Love inherited 98 percent of Nirvana’s publishing rights — remember, Kurt was the band’s key songwriter — and later sold a quarter of that interest to Primary Wave Music in 2006.

Bob Marley

In a massive $50 million deal, Primary Wave Music acquired a controlling stake in the catalog of late reggae legend Bob Marley in 2018. Sold by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, the deal also includes work from artists like Toots and the Maytals and U2, and others on the Blue Mountain Music label, alongside the extensive collection of Marley hits.

The Beatles

Perhaps no band’s catalog has been through more turmoil than that of The Beatles. After a series of label transfers and business dealings, ATV Music acquired control of the band’s catalog in 1969. It was later sold to pop star Michael Jackson in 1985 as part of a 4000-song deal that transferred all of ATV’s catalog, including the Beatles hits, to Jackson. After decades of battling in the courts, Beatles bassist and co-founder Paul McCartney finally regained rights to the band’s catalog in 2018.

Ray Charles

In 2020, the estate of bluesman Ray Charles reached a deal with Primary Wave Music to acquire a majority stake of Charles’s work produced before 1964 for an undisclosed, multi-million dollar sum. The catalog includes hits like “I Got a Woman” and “Ain’t That Love,” for which Primary Wave will now be responsible for determining licensing opportunities and collecting (most of the) royalties.


Iconic ‘80s punk band Blondie, founded by Debbie Harry and Chris Stein, transferred 100 percent of their royalties to Hipgnosis Songs Fund, the U.K.-based firm that owns the catalogs of artists like Neil Young, Barry Manilow, and Shakira, in 2020. The catalog, which sold for an undisclosed sum, includes nearly 200 songs from the glam-punk pioneers.

Taylor Swift

In what was a very public battle between the world’s biggest pop star and label executive Scooter Braun, Taylor Swift’s original masters were sold to Big Machine Label Group for $350 million. Swift’s catalog alone was later sold to Shamrock Holdings, a private equity firm, for $300 million. In a revenge plot of sorts, Swift is still re-recording songs that she lost the rights to in the deal, including “Love Story,” in order to regain control over her life’s work.

Hall & Oates

In one of its earliest deals with a major band, Primary Wave Music acquired a “significant interest” in the pop hits of ‘80s faves Hall and Oates in 2007. Deals of the term were never disclosed, but it’s likely that the publishing company acquired more than half of the band’s interest for a sum between $25 million and $50 million.
