Up next are titles by Wanda Jackson, Metal Blade's Brian Slagel and Barney Hoskyns.
BMG is diving into the world of music book publishing with its first publication out today celebrating
the 50th anniversary of The Zombies’ 1968 classic album Odessey and Oracle. It is the first in a series of music-related hardcovers, softcovers, e-books, photo books, audio books and associated projects from BMG that will explore the intersection between music and culture.
Upcoming books include memoirs by Metal Blade Records founder Brian Slagel and songwriter Billy Edd Wheeler, an autobiography by rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson and the publication of Barney Hoskyns’ out-of-print "Say It One Time For The Brokenhearted: Country Soul In The American South."
“This latest extension of BMG’s service to artists is about seeking out every opportunity to serve our clients’ needs, as well as open new conversations within the BMG framework," said Zach Katz, BMG US president, repertoire & marketing, in a statement. "It’s about putting our clients at the center, deepening our relationship and working together with them to figure out the best strategy for realizing their creative ideas. It’s also about publishing great books.”
