MUMBAI: Warner/Chappell Music has expanded its worldwide agreement with GRAMMY Award-winning performer and songwriter Don Henley, a founding member of the Eagles.
As part of the agreement, Warner/Chappell will now administer worldwide publishing rights to Henley’s share of all Eagles albums, marking the first time that a major music publisher will administer Henley’s shares of the group’s catalog in the US. Warner/Chappell Music began its relationship with Henley in 1993, and will continue to administer his solo catalog and future compositions worldwide, as well as his Eagles songs outside the US.
Warner/Chappell Music president and Warner/Chappell Music US chairman and CEO Scott Francis said, "Don is one of the preeminent artists of our time, whose songs and performances have connected with millions of fans around the world and across multiple genres. Don has been a leading musical voice, as well as an advocate for a number of educational, environmental and civic causes. We are honored to continue our relationship with him and the Eagles, and with such a renowned catalog of work."
"Warner/Chappell has been administering my solo songs for 17 years in the US, and it made good sense to expand our relationship to include my Eagles songs. I trust that my music is in good hands with the company," said Henley.
