Bob Dylan’s whole inventory of tunes, which spans back 60 years and is among the most valued close to that of the Beatles, is being procured by Universal Music Publishing Group.
The arrangement covers 600 tune copyrights including “Blowin’ In The Wind,” “The Times They Are a-Changin’,” and “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door,” “Tangled Up In Blue.”
“Splendid and moving, motivating and wonderful, canny and provocative, his melodies are immortal—regardless of whether they were composed the greater part a century prior or yesterday,” Chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group Sir Lucian Grainge said in a readied proclamation on Monday.
The exchange’s declaration comes half a month after the vocalist musician’s thoughts about enemy of Semitism and unpublished tune verses sold at closeout for a sum of $495,000.
Dylan, who previously came into the public’s cognizance through New York City’s Greenwich Village society music scene in the mid 1960s, has sold in excess of 125 million records around the world. He was granted the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016, the primary musician to get such a differentiation.
Monetary terms of the exchange were not unveiled.
