Bob Dylan Sells Recorded Catalogue To Sony, Another Landmark Deal

Bob Dylan has sold his entire body of recorded music to Sony Group, the latest hundred-million dollar deal struck during this current land grab for musical rights.

The deal spans 58 years’ worth of music, everything Bob Dylan has ever commited to tape, and all of it originally released through Sony company Columbia Records. An exact figure amount wasn’t disclosed, but Billboard is guessing around US$200 million.

In December 2020, Dylan sold his songwriting catalogue, worth a great deal more than his recorded output, to Universal Music Group for an estimate US$300 million.

Last month, Bruce Springsteen also sold his back catalogue — publishing and recordings — to Sony for an estimate US$500 million.

Like Dylan, Springsteen had released all his recorded work through Sony subsidiaries.
