Sony Music and the Michael Jackson estate have renewed the deal that covers the late pop star’s recorded music, continuing an agreement that has already been in place for 42 years. As well as covering Jackson’s full recordings catalogue, it also gives the option for Sony to partner on new projects with the estate.

“Michael Jackson was an unsurpassed genius and an iconic force in music entertainment”, says Sony Music CEO Rob Stringer. “The music – and videos – he made as an artist as part of the Sony Music family are essential to pop culture history. We’re proud to be part of that history and to find new innovative ways to make Michael’s music available to future generations of fans”.

Jackson estate executors John Branca and John McClain add in unison: “We couldn’t ask for more creative and innovative partners than Sony and Rob Stringer, whose history working personally with Michael goes back to the 1990s. Michael continues to inspire generations of artists who have come after him and attract new fans who understand that his music and message are more important than ever. We look forward to continuing to preserve and develop his remarkable musical legacy with Sony”.
