Union Square Music Publishing has signed a deal to represent the catalogue of Swing Out Sister’s Corinne Drewery and Andy Connell.
The deal includes the full back catalogue of nine studio albums, the double Grammy-nominated single Breakout, hit singles Surrender and You On My Mind, as well as Connell’s pre-Swing Out Sister material from his time in Factory Records’ A Certain Ratio and Kalima.
The act was established in 1985 and this year Swing Out Sister celebrated the 25th anniversary of their debut album It’s Better To Travel entering the UK charts at No.1.
Union Square Music Publishing general manager, Jonathan Kyte said of the deal: “We’re delighted that Corinne and Andy have decided to sign with USMP and we’re excited about exploring new opportunities for their fine collection of songs. We’re very much looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship”.
Swing Out Sister added: “It is a great pleasure to have all of our works looked after by Union Square Music. Having signed our first publishing deal 25 years ago, it is very exciting to have a new creative team involved in our second. We are looking forward to working with Peter, Pete, Jonathan, and the whole team.”
The band are currently promoting their album Private View and first DVD release Tokyo Stories.
