Scandinavian Songs rebrands as Cosmos Music Publishing

By | Published on Friday 2 June 2017

Swedish independent record company Cosmos Music has announced that Scandinavian Songs, the indie music publisher it acquired in 2015, is now rebranding as Cosmos Music Publishing. Since the acquisition of Scandinavian Songs, the label and publisher have slowly integrated their back office operations and are now looking to collaborate more on creative and marketing projects too.

Cosmos has also been busy expanding its sub-publishing and administration business, allying with an assortment of other independent music publishers which it represents in the Nordic region, including Imagem, Budde Music, Bucks Music, Songs Music Publishing, Native Tongue, Mute Songs, Mushroom Music and Manners McDade.

Says the company’s Hans Desmond: “Representing these great international indie publishers and their simply amazing repertoires makes us a serious force to be reckoned with. In the last twelve months we have seen a significant increase in licensing requests, partly thanks to the added resources from Cosmos Music, but also simply because of the combined wealth of fantastic copyrights that we now offer”.

Although both sides of the business will now operate under the Cosmos name, the Scandinavian Songs brand will still be employed, now as an imprint of the label for one-off singles and other development projects.
