Prince, in a continuous effort to become fully independent, has now taken the next step in that journey. The icon has pulled his music publishing from Universal and is moving it in house to the newly created NPG Music Publishing.
With NPG Music Publishing Prince’s publishing will be independently controlled and administered. The catalogue includes hits such as “Kiss,” “When Doves Cry,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “U Got the Look,” “Purple Rain,” and “Diamonds and Pearls.”
“NPG Music Publishing was founded by Artists for Artists,” according to the announcement. “The team will be led by some of the best talent in the industry.”
