Red Bull Media House has partnered with Sony/ATV Music Publishing as part of a worldwide administration deal.

The three-year agreement covers all territories globally apart from the US and Austria, where the media company will instead keep administrative functions for the music publishing business in-house. Under the deal publishing rights include artists signed to Red Bull Records including alternative rock band Twin Atlantic.

Martin Brem, head of audio portfolio at Red Bull Media House, commented: “Joining forces with Sony/ATV means more power to our musical creators on a worldwide basis through the market leaders network. Our multifaceted approach as a media and content production company means that we can support both established and up-and-coming artists by offering unique and exciting opportunities. To have Sony/ATV on our side will help us to take our global artist development initiatives to a new level.”

President Sony/ATV (Europe), Guy Moot, added: “We are really happy to conclude this deal with Red Bull Media House. Red Bull has long been on the forefront of championing young new bands and giving them the time to develop. They have built a powerhouse of a company which we are honoured to be in business with.”
