USM sign Sandie Shaw catalogue
11/10/2012
Union Square Music have signed a long term deal with Sandie Shaw to represent her recording catalogue.

Known as the barefoot queen of pop for her habit of not wearing shoes onstage, Sandie came to fame in the 60s at the impossibly early age of 17 with a string of classic singles including (There’s) Always Something There To Remind Me, Girl Don’t Come, Long Live Love and the 1967 Eurovision Song Contest winner Puppet On A String. A successful collaboration with life long fans The Smiths in the 80s saw Sandie back in the charts with a version of Hand In Glove and a new album Hello Angel. Sandie is still active in the industry today – having recently performed at the T Rex Tribute Concert at the Shepherds Bush Empire and with the Jools Holland Orchestra on tour. She is also on the board of the Featured Artists Coalition.

Under the new arrangement USM will re-issue Sandie’s entire catalogue, physically and digitally, with initial marketing activity centred around the beginning of 2013 when the company will release a best of and expanded original albums. The deal will also see USM exploit the recordings, which include 16 UK Hits, via synchronisation and sub-licensing.
 
Comments:

Peter Stack - MD Union Square Music

“USM are thrilled to be representing Sandie Shaw’s catalogue. Sandie is one of the UK’s most successful and iconic artists. Still very active in the record industry she has become an inspiration to many of today’s female artists and we greatly look forward to a creative, imaginative, successful and fun partnership.”

Sandie Shaw

“To have a company totally dedicated to promoting and exploiting back catalogue using the best possible people to run it is very attractive to an artist who has the good fortune to own their own work. In the short time I have been with USM I have been deeply impressed with the individual care and attention and sheer professionalism they have shown. It is what all artists deserve for their work.”

Jona Lewie’s 1980 hit song is climbing up the charts again thanks to the IKEA campaign featuring the hit single You’ll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties.

The song is achieving cult status with a new generation which are discovering the song for the first time along with those reliving their youth and whom remember the song the first time around. The IKEA Campaign is set to run up to the end of April 2012
