Suede songwriters Brett Anderson, Richard Oakes and Neil Codling have signed a worldwide publishing deal with BMG Chrysalis.
The deal covers Anderson’s work from the band’s 1993 debut album Suede right through to 2013’s Bloodsports. It covers Richard Oakes and Neil Codling’s songwriting contributions to the band since they joined in 1994 and 1996 respectively.
Discussing the signing, Alexi Cory-Smith, SVP of BMG Chrysalis UK, said, “Suede’s music has resonated for over 20 years with a distinct creative vision. We are delighted Brett, Richard and Neil have chosen BMG.”
The deal with BMG is the latest development in the re-emergence of the group since they reformed in 2010.
Suede play Kenwood House in London tonight (August 23) as part of a string of festivals before embarking on a tour of the Far East and Europe in October.
