Bruce Springsteen has sold his master recordings and music publishing rights to Sony for $500 million, according to Billboard. The catalog includes more than 300 songs and 20 studio albums, including “Born to Run,” “Born in the U.S.A.” and “The Rising.”
Springsteen has sold more than 65.5 million albums in the United States, according to the RIAA.
His deal comes as artists including Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, and Paul have inked similar deals. Dylan’s catalog was sold in 2020 to Universal Music Publishing Group in a nine figure deal.
Springsteen has been on Sony for his entire career, signing first with CBS Records in 1973. CBS released “Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.” in February 1973. Sony acquired CBS Records in 1987 for $2 billion.
