Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker Sells Entire Catalogue to Sony Music Publishing

Kevin Parker has made a significant move by selling his entire catalogue, including his Tame Impala output, to Sony Music Publishing.

This deal includes all his works under Tame Impala, as well as songs he has penned for prominent artists such as Dua Lipa and Rihanna. Notably, the agreement also encompasses Parker’s future compositions, whether they are solo endeavours or collaborations.

As per Rolling Stone, the transaction details were not disclosed, but the partnership marks a continuation of a long-standing relationship between Parker and Sony Music Publishing.

Parker has been with Sony Music Publishing since the release of Tame Impala’s acclaimed debut album, 2010’s Innerspeaker.

Reflecting on the decision, Parker said, “The idea of passing on ownership of my songs is one that I don’t think about very lightly, at all. They are the fruit of my blood, sweat, and creativity over all the years I’ve been a recording artist and songwriter so far.

“I have a lot of love and trust for the Sony publishing family and have only had great experiences with Damian Trotter and the rest of the gang worldwide. I don’t think my songs could be in any safer hands than Sony’s, and I’m excited for the future and happy I can keep working with them on whatever the future brings…”

Damian Trotter, Managing Director of Sony Music Publishing’s Australia division, praised Parker’s unique talent and dedication to his craft.

“Having worked with Kevin since before the release of the first Tame Impala album, it has been thrilling to witness his rise to success worldwide, which is so well deserved,” he shared. “We are so proud and humbled to be taking custodianship of this iconic catalogue of songs and to be counting our relationship with Kevin in this exciting phase of his music-making career.”

Parker’s extensive catalogue includes collaborations with Lady Gaga (“Perfect Illusion”), Travis Scott (“Skeletons”), and Dua Lipa (“Houdini”, “Training Season”, and “Illusion”).
