ATLAS MUSIC PUBLISHING have signed the COUNTING CROWS to a global music publishing deal, it was announced by Chief Creative Officer JENNIFER BLACKEMAN. The agreement covers the entire catalog (excluding the most recent album), and includes multiple hit singles and albums that have collectively sold more than 20 million worldwide, including the OSCAR nominated single “Accidentally in Love” from the film "Shrek 2."
ATLAS MUSIC PUBLISHING will now administer such songs as “Mr. Jones,” “Accidentally In Love,” “Round Here,” “A Long December” and “Colourblind.”
Commented BLACKMAN: "The COUNTING CROWS have a legacy of writing hits centered around unforgettable storytelling, beautiful harmonies, superior musicianship, and, of course, ADAM DURITZ’s distinctive vocals, but it’s also the deeper catalog that has all of us really excited about our new partnership with the band. By exposing the depth and quality of not only the hits, but the gems within the catalog, songs like “Goodnight LA,” “Why You Should Come When I Call,” “Mercury” and “Insignificant” can speak to the leagues of loyal fans and also to a new generation of listeners. In addition, ADAM's history of nurturing young talent falls directly in line with our overall ethos....it is about the talent, not the buzz. Our entire staff embraces and celebrates the artistic ethic that ADAM brings to the table and every department is thrilled to be representing him and the band’s music globally."
