Up for a bid is an eclectic catalog with music from EDM, pop, rock, and folk artists from around the world.
The highest-earning income source is international public performance — 42% of last year’s revenue comes from upwards of 75 countries outside the United States. International streaming is the second leading source, with 23% of royalties generated in the last 12 months. What’s exciting is that these earnings saw impressive growth, up 56% year-over-year.
The catalog’s highest-earning title is “House On Fire” from the blues/rock band Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown. The 2013 release brought in 27% of last year’s income. Interestingly, “House On Fire” was placed in the fifth episode of Season 6 of F/X’s popular TV series Sons of Anarchy. This means every time that episode re-airs on TV or streamed on-demand, you’ll earn public performance royalties for the song.
Another notable title in this collection is “Hung Up,” a 2017 collaboration between Tritonal and Sj. The track has an impressive 37+ million spins on Spotify and grew 28% year-over-year. Also featured is “Ready To Love You” from Danish DJ Hedegaard, 2013’s “Bittersweet” from alternative/indie duo ARCHIS, and “Traveling Alone” from Norwegian singer/songwriter Marit Larse, among many other.
Streaming Growth Worldwide. According to IFPI’S Global Music Report 2019, streaming revenues were up 34% in 2018, accounting for nearly half (47%) of total recorded music revenues. By the end of 2018, there were 255 million users of paid subscription accounts globally.
This is good news for you as the investor, as this catalog’s international streaming income is seeing impressive year-over-year growth of over 50%.
Diversity in Song Income Mix. Revenues are also widely distributed — the single highest-earning song only accounts for 22% of last year’s collective income from both distributors. This means the catalog’s earnings are not tied to the success of a single track and provides built-in diversification for you as an investor.
International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad, over 85% of last year’s earnings. International royalty distribution/collection can lag behind domestic payments and arrive with limited detail. As the winner of this auction, you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by AMRA and SESAC, regardless of when they were earned.
