Aerosmith Bring Entire Recorded Catalog To Universal Music Group

Aerosmith have announced a new worldwide deal with Universal Music Group (UMG). As part of the partnership, the band’s full catalog, future releases, merchandise, and audio-visual content will all be handled by the label in 2022.

Notably, the deal will also give UMG access to Aerosmith’s “Vindaloo Vaults” and the personal archives of each member. The group will also help curate collections of music, photos, video footage, artwork, journals, setlists and memorabilia. Some of these future releases will include never-before seen and heard content. On top of that, UMG will also be bringing Aerosmith’s music videos on YouTube up to current video and audio standards.

Guitarist Joe Perry commented:

“It’s been a long road but I’m extremely happy and proud to say on behalf of Aerosmith we have been able to bring our 50 years of music under one roof by partnering with UMG. This will allow us to bring our music to our fans in ways we never were able to before. It’s something we’ve dreamed about happening for a long time. It’s a win for Aerosmith, UMG and ultimately our fans. Needless to say we are very excited. It’s an incredible way to celebrate 50 years and the many more years to come.”

Sir Lucian Grainge, Chairman & CEO of UMG, continued:

“Aerosmith’s global success places them in rarefied air among the all-time greatest rock icons. On the band’s 50th anniversary, Aerosmith continues to influence the course of music not only through their iconic catalog but also through film, television and video games and their inimitable style. On a personal note, I couldn’t be prouder that they have chosen UMG as their global partner. We look forward to building upon their incredible legacy and ensuring their music continues to inspire fans around the world.”

Aerosmith’s manager Larry Rudolph added:

“I couldn’t be happier for the band members and their families. Not only are we bringing together the band’s entire catalog in one place, but we’re entrusting these recordings to the very capable hands of Sir Lucian, Bruce Resnikoff and the incredible UMG system worldwide. I would like to thank Sir Lucian for tirelessly working together to craft perhaps the most unique and mutually beneficial catalog arrangement in history and providing a huge commitment to Aerosmith. The members of Aerosmith and I thank him and we all look forward to many years of successfully continuing to share the catalog of the greatest American rock band in history with the world.”
