"Our new brand embodies a modern vision to be an authentic reflection of the music and songwriters we represent," says Jon Platt.
Sony/ATV Music Publishing is rebranding as Sony Music Publishing, more than 25 years after the original Sony Music Publishing merged with the Michael Jackson-owned ATV Music in 1995.
SMP’s rebrand also includes a new logo and mission, and more clearly aligns the publisher under the Sony umbrella.
The new logo, according to the company, "is designed as an abstraction of sound waves—with resonance and vibrations that express infinitely expanding opportunities for songwriters." Similarly, the new mission statement is "every voice matters," reflecting the publisher’s dedication to its writers.
