The BMGs have renewed their global administration deal with that there Jeff Tweedy. The Wilco frontman first appointed Bug Music to administrate some of his song rights back in 2004. BMG subsequently acquired Bug Music in 2011, and then expanded its deal with Tweedy the following year to cover his entire songwriting catalogue.

Confirming that partnership was now being renewed, Tweedy said last week: “I truly appreciate the loyalty and commitment BMG has shown me for so many years and I love that I will be able to continue working alongside these great people with familiar faces”.

Meanwhile BMG’s EVP Music Publishing Catalogues, David Hirshland added: “It has been an absolute privilege to work with Jeff over the past fifteen years and we are THRILLED he has entrusted BMG to continue to help build his immense and timeless musical legacy”.
