Independent publisher Imagem has announced a new worldwide deal with Madness covering the publishing rights in three of the band’s more recent albums, 1999’s ‘Wonderful’, 2009’s ‘The Liberty Of Norton Folgate’ and last year’s ‘Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da’.

Confirming the deal, Imagem UK MD Kim Frankiewicz told CMU: “Madness are a fantastically British band; since the late 70s they’ve provided a sonic narrative to British culture. We’re absolutely delighted to be working with them moving forward, and also representing the last three albums from their stellar catalogue”.

Meanwhile Madness manager Hugh Gadsdon added: “Imagem are an exciting, relatively new company, who over the last five years have demonstrated an energy and ambition which we could not ignore and wanted to be part of. The Madness team are looking forward to working closely with Kim and Imagem, as the band continue to tour globally and record great new music”.
