Phil Collins, Genesis Sell Package Of Music Rights To Concord

Concord has purchased the publishing and recorded music catalogues of Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford as well as the publishing and recorded music catalogue from their years in the progressive rock band Genesis.

The combined music catalogues of Genesis and the artists are some of the most commercially successful of all time. During their storied careers, Genesis have released 15 original studio albums, Banks six, Collins eight and Rutherford has released two solo albums as well as nine as Mike + The Mechanics.

The combined record sales, including additional live albums, movie soundtracks and box sets, are in excess of 250 million copies globally and contain songs including “The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway,” “Sussudio,” “Against All Odds,” “All I Need is a Miracle,” “In the Air Tonight,” “I Can’t Dance,” “That’s All,” “Land of Confusion,” “The Living Years,” “Invisible Touch” and countless other hits.

Music credited to Genesis’ former lead singer Peter Gabriel and former lead guitarist Steve Hackett in the early Genesis albums is not part of the acquisition.
