LONDON (Reuters) - The Rolling Stones on Monday signed a new deal with Universal Music Group covering the legendary rock band’s music and audio-visual catalog, global merchandising and brand management, the music company said.
The deal continues a partnership that covers the band’s catalog including classic albums like Sticky Fingers that was released in 1971.
“After a decade of working in partnership together we are thrilled to expand and extend our relationship with the Rolling Stones,” Universal Music Group chief executive Lucian Grainge, said in a statement.
The statement gave no financial details of the deal.
Vocalist Mick Jagger, guitarist Keith Richards and others formed the Stones in England in 1962 and together they recorded a long string of hits including (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. The band continues to perform globally to large audiences.
