Warner Chappell Music Signs Publishing Deal For Stone Temple Pilots Catalog


Warner Chappell Music announced it has signed an exclusive worldwide publishing deal to administer the catalog of Stone Temple Pilot members Robert DeLeo, Dean DeLeo, and Eric Kretz.

The multi-platinum, Grammy-winning rockers have sold 40 million records worldwide and have earned 16 Top 10 singles on the Billboard rock charts, including hits like "Interstate Love Song," "Plush" and "Vasoline."

"Stone Temple Pilots helped to define a distinct rock sound of a decade through their incredible songwriting and eclectic performances, and we're thrilled to be bringing their catalog back to Warner Chappell Music," commented the publishing company's senior vp, A&R, U.S. Greg Sowders. "Their work has left an impact on American culture that continues to resonate today."

Added Warner Chappell Music president of A&R, U.S., Ryan Press, "There's no overstating the role Stone Temple Pilots played in developing the landmark sound of their era. But it's the quality of their songwriting perhaps more than anything that has stood the test of time."

Warner Chappell Music recently inked deals with Lizzo and Dominican singer-songwriter Vicente Garcia.
