Independent publishers Imagem have announced a long-term global publishing deal with the wonderful Sparks which will cover the whole of the genre-jumping electro duo’s back catalogue.

Imagem UK MD Tim Smith told CMU: “It’s a real privilege to be working with [Sparks brothers] Ron and Russell [Mael] and such an iconic canon of music. We have already got lots of ideas of how we can reinvigorate what we feel is an undervalued and underexploited catalogue in sync and other areas. Sparks are not content to rest on their laurels, they are always moving forward and we have already had some great discussions about how we can help them put together a range of really interesting projects”.

The Maels added: “We are extremely happy that our catalogue is now with Imagem Music Group. It’s great to be working with people who understand our legacy and genuinely appreciate our music. We have been hugely impressed with Imagem Music’s enthusiasm and ideas – they are an innovative and forward thinking team and we look forward to working with them”.
