Queen Ink New Record Deal

12/04/2013
.
(hennemusic) Queen have signed a new, long-term deal with the Universal Music Group. The new deal, which covers the world outside of North America, comes three years after Queen first signed with Universal Music.

That move saw the band release music through Island Records for the first time in its history and signalled the start of a major re-mastering and repackaging programme, providing live tracks, alternative takes and other additional content for Queen's 15 studio albums.

Queen marked their 40th anniversary in 2011 with a major marketing campaign and a series of high profile events, including the Stormtroopers in Stilettos exhibition staged in London and a major BBC TV documentary on the band.

"We have also enjoyed working with Universal," said Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor. "In spite of being the biggest music company in the world they succeed in retaining a very hands-on personal relationship with their artists, something we much appreciate." more on this story
