Following a new long term deal with the estate of the late and very great Kirsty MacColl, Union Square Music has announced a big reissue programme of the singer’s music for the autumn.

‘The One And Only Kirsty MacColl’ promotion will include digital and physical reissues of albums ‘Kite’, ‘Electric Landlady’ and ‘Titantic Days’, plus CD re-releases of the singer’s debut album ‘Desperate Character’ and of the charity tribute album recorded at the Shepherds Bush Empire in 2010 featuring various other artists performing MacColl’s songs. Under the new deal, USM will also now handle synchronisation and sub-licensing deals for ‘Kite’ and ‘Electric Landlady’.

USM MD Peter Stack told CMU: “Since Kirsty’s tragic death in 2000, her great music lives on and she has become an inspiration to many of today’s female singer-songwriters. USM are very proud and excited to be working with this great catalogue and hope to play a part in bringing Kirsty’s music to a whole new generation of music fans”.
