The Universal Music Group has got itself a Sex Pistol. That makes it sound like a kidnap situation. No, Glen Matlock has – willingly, as far as I can tell – signed a new solo record deal with the major record company.

He will release a new album with UMG later this year, while the major’s catalogue division will oversee reissues of a number of his earlier solo works.

“I am over the moon to have now signed to Universal Music Group, who will be releasing my brand spanking new album, and I can’t wait to get cracking with the team”, says Matlock. “Watch this space”.

Matlock’s last solo album, ‘Good To Go’, came out on 2018. Ahead of the new album release, he will play West Hampstead Arts Club in London on 10 Mar and the Cornwall Punk Festival on 20 Mar.
