Universal Music Publishing has announced a new worldwide agreement with Shane Macgowan which will see the publisher representing the one time Pogue’s songs catalogue, which includes his 50% of the seminal Christmas favourite ‘Fairytale Of New York’.

Universal Publishing UK Deputy MD Mike McCormack told CMU: “Shane Macgowan is a rare talent and has amassed a fantastic body of work over the last 25 years or so. This new agreement is a real coup for UMPG and it is very rewarding and exciting to be involved with one of the greatest songwriters of his generation”.
