Taylor Swift has extended her longtime publishing relationship with Sony/ATV, the company has announced.
The star became the youngest ever writer/artist to sign to the firm a year after she moved to Nashville aged 14.
In a statement, Sony/ATV said it was “proud to say Taylor’s new deal reflects her record-breaking achievements and recognition as one of the world’s greatest songwriters”.
Swift’s 1989 was Universal’s biggest money-making record in 2015, despite having been released in October 2014.
“Sony/ATV is proud to say taylor’s new deal reflects her record-breaking achievements.”
According to the IFPI, 1989 sold 6 million copies in 2014 and 3.5 million copies in 2015.
The album surpassed 5m US sales in July 2015, making it the fastest-selling record to reach the figure in more than 10 years.
1989 – along with Swift’s previous four studio LPs – continues to be unavailable on Spotify.
In August, Sony Corporation was granted unconditional permission by the European Commission to complete its buyout of the Jackson Estate’s 50% stake in Sony/ATV.
