Bryan Ferry Signs New Deal
Music legend Bryan ferry has signed a three album deal with BMG Chrysalis UK. The company will also release the majority of his 40 year song catalogue including both his solo work as well as that with Roxy Music.
To mark the 40th anniversary of his esteemed career, Bryan has recently re-recorded some of his own compositions, performed by The Bryan Ferry Orchestra in the style of the 1920s. The collection will be the first of three new albums to be released by BMG. The album, ‘The Jazz Age’, will be released in the UK on November the 26th and be his 14th album release.
Bryan is perhaps most well-known for his tracks ‘Slave To Love’ and ‘Let’s Stick Together’ which reached number 4 in the charts and featured a video which included supermodel Jerry Hall.
BMG Chrysalis UK SVP Alexi Cory-Smith said: “Bryan Ferry is a consummate artist with an incredible command of detail and understanding of how he wants his music to be presented to the world. We are delighted that he has chosen to partner with BMG as custodian of his rights.”
BMG is already the world's fourth largest music publishing company with it announcing earlier this year its intention is to double revenue in 2012 from releasing records. BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch said: “The signing of Bryan Ferry is a clear sign of the seriousness of our intent in the record business.”
