Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited, one of the busiest and most talked about companies in the publishing space of the last 12 months, has signed up to sponsor a brand new category at the A&R Awards 2019.
The firm is backing the ceremony’s brand new Song Of The Year category, recognising the artists, writers and publishers behind the A&R community’s favourite UK-sourced hit of the past 12 months.
Merck Mercuriadis, Founder of the Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited, said: “We believe that the song is the currency on which the entire worldwide music business revolves, so we are delighted to be involved in helping to recognize the Song Of The Year for the first time ever – along with the incredible songwriters responsible for creating it.”
MBW recently revealed that Hipgnosis has already acquired catalogs comprising over 5,000 songs – and has plans for another $1bn worth of deals in the near future.
