Independent music publisher Imagem has announced it is extending its partnership with Brenda Richie Publishing, which co-controls the Lionel Richie catalogue. Imagem has previously administrated the Brenda Richie songs in the UK, but will now do so in most European countries also, excluding Spain, Portugal and Greece.

Confirming the new deal, AndrĂ© de Raaff, CEO of Imagem Music Worldwide, told CMU: “We are delighted to be building on our successful relationship with Brenda Richie Publishing and to be extending our agreement throughout Europe with this wonderful catalogue of songs. We have already delivered great results for the catalogue in the UK and look forward to continuing our great working relationship with Lorne Saifer and Mario Gonzalez and to replicating this success throughout these new European territories”.
