The Orchard has signed a global distribution deal for Ignition Records, including their associated labels Big Brother Recordings and Sour Mash Records.
This will be the first time the company has entrusted the distribution of their extensive catalogue to a single company. Ignition has previously worked with physical and digital distributors including PIAS and Fuga.
The global music distributor and artist and label services company is currently chasing No.1 with the 25th anniversary vinyl reissue of Oasis’ What’s The Story (Morning Glory). Proper Music is working with The Orchard and Ignition on physical distribution for the new edition. Proper recently won in the Sales Team category at the Music Week Awards.
Ignition is home to Big Brother Recordings, which houses Oasis’ catalogue and Noel Gallagher’s label, Sour Mash Records. Ignition Records’ own catalogue includes albums from artists including Stereophonics, Primal Scream, Joe Strummer, Courteeners, The Coral and more.
After releasing their first three albums, Oasis started the Big Brother Recordings label as a partnership with Sony Music.
