The latest music icon to sell his rich catalogue of songs is Paul Simon.
Sony Music has acquired Simon’s catalogue, which covers six decades, from his time with Art Garfunkel, through his solo career.
Financial details of the deal were not announced, but Bob Dylan and Stevie Nick sold their complete catalogues and Canada’s Neil Young sold 50% of his for millions of dollars.
The 79-year old singer songwriter is a 16-time Grammy winner who says he’s pleased to have Sony Music take custody of his songs for the coming decades.
