TG Publishing in Copenhagen has signed a worldwide partnership with BMG Rights Management in Berlin. The agreement covers TG's catalog of 1,500 songs.

As part of the deal, BMG acquired 50% of the catalog and will sub-publish the remaining 50% in addition to future works. Terms were not disclosed.

TG Publishing is a 25-year-old publishing/production company with 20 songwriters and seven studios in Denmark and Sweden. Its roster includes artists such as Aqua, Me & My, Tiggy, Smile.Dk, Dr. Bombay, Chipz, Elize, Kato and DJ Ötzi.

John Aagaard, CEO/owner TG Publishing, said in a statement: "We are convinced that we have done the perfect match entering into partnership with Thomas Scherer and Niclass Björlund from BMG Rights Management. This set-up with BMG's worldwide pro-active sales force and administration services gives TG Publishing the liberty to be even more creative.

"It gives us more time to be involved in developing new artists, at the same time we can give our producers and songwriters the best possible and strongest team around them to get their music released around the world."

"It is with great pleasure that I look forward to working with John Aagaard and TG Publishing. TG have proven their success and I feel great to be a part of what is coming from TG in the future," said Niclass Björlund, GM BMG Rights Management (Scandinavia).
