Bowie's recordings from 2000 until his passing in 2016 will be under the WMG banner starting in 2023.
David Bowie’s career-spanning catalog of recordings will be represented by Warner Music Group for the first time, through a new licensing agreement reached with the late legend's estate.
Starting in 2023, the Thin White Duke's recordings from 2000 until his passing in 2016 will shift to WMG on a global basis, in what the major music company describes as "a landmark deal." With it, WMG completes the set by uniting five decades of Bowie’s music under the same creative roof. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Among the artist's later works covered by this new pact are 2002’s Mercury Prize-nominated Heathen; 2003’s Reality; 2013’s The Next Day; and his final studio album, 2016's Blackstar, also shortlisted for the annual Mercury Prize.
