Carly Simon signs global deal with UMPG

Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) has signed a global administration deal with Carly Simon. The agreement covers her songwriting catalogue, as well all musical compositions controlled by her publishing companies, C’est Music and Quakenbush Music Ltd. 

Her own hits include You’re So Vain, That’s the Way I’ve Always Heard It Should Be, Anticipation, The Right Thing To Do and You Belong To Me. With Let the River Run, from the film Working Girl, Simon became the first artist to win a Grammy Award, an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for a song composed, written and performed by a single artist.

UMPG chairman and CEO Jody Gerson said: “Both as an iconic songwriter and heroine of the heart, Carly has been a huge influence on my life musically. From my generation to my daughter’s, her music continues to be a source of inspiration and emotional resonance for people around the world. UMPG is thrilled to welcome her to our world-class family of songwriters. We look forward to creating outstanding opportunities that support her legacy and introduce her songs to new fans worldwide.”
