A number of high profile artists have been selling off their catalogs in recent months. The most high-profile sale was Bob Dylan’s massive deal with Universal Music, who purchased his catalog for over $300 million.
Another high-profile sale came from The Killers, who sold off their pre-2020 catalog to Eldridge for an undisclosed amount.
Another firm, Hipgnosis, invested in the publishing and songwriting catalog rights for Neil Young, Lindsey Buckingham and Jimmy Iovine within the last month.
David Crosby of Crosby, Stills & Nash recently stated that he sold his catalog as well, but claimed it was due out of necessity.
