BMG acquires Adage IV

Holdings have been recorded by Mayer, Charles, more

Continuing its pursuit of classic copyrights, BMG Rights Management has acquired the Adage IV catalog.

Beverly Hills-based Adage’s holdings have been recorded by John Mayer, Frankie Lymon, Ray Charles, Faith Hill and the Four Seasons, among others.

BMG Rights Management will now control such songs as “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” “Stay,” “Let’s Go Get Stoned,” “Little Darlin’,” “I Don’t Need No Doctor” and “Stay.”

Laurent Hubert, BMG’s chief operating officer for North America, said in a statement, “The iconic songs in the Adage IV catalog are a perfect fit for our synch and licensing strategy.”

In April, BMG Rights Management — a partnership between Bertelsmann and venture capital firm KKR — purchased the noted publisher Cherry Lane Music for an undisclosed price.
