If you’re looking for a diverse mix of established and newly released music, you won’t want to miss this collection. Up for auction is a catalog with heavy international activity, led by this the highest-earning song “Kiss You Inside Out.” The 2011 release by Canadian pop-rock group Hedley is both the oldest and highest-earning song in the catalog, contributing nearly 40% of the revenue generated in the last 12 months.,

The remaining 60% of this catalog’s earnings are spread out relatively evenly across the remaining tracks in this collection. Newer electronic releases like “Plans” from Elephante, “Out Of Love” from Two Friends, and “State I’m In” from Brandyn Burnette contributed to nearly a quarter of earnings in the last 12 months. Also worth noting is the 2016 release “Marathon” from the Lost Kings, showing impressive growth of nearly 70% over the prior year.

Both international and streaming sources are on the rise, thanks to the impressive worldwide influence of this collection’s artists and genres.

Key Drivers

Age. This collection features new and established works. This catalog highest earning work “Kiss You Inside Out” was released nearly a decade ago. This provides a diverse income mix between new(er) releases and more mature works. Industrywide, “Catalog Songs” (music released more than 18 months ago) and “Deep Catalog” (music released more than 3 years ago) together represent over 60% of music streamed today.

This collection aligns with this trend. New releases make up 60% of this collection’s highest-earning songs in the last 12 months. A catalog containing a mix of older and newer releases is something worth noting as an investor.

International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 71% of historical earnings. Although international royalty distribution 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 BMI, regardless of when they were earned.

Pop & Streaming. According to the BuzzAngle 2017 Music Report, pop titles were the third-most streamed songs last year, representing 15.6% of all streams. Streaming accounts for 31% of this pop catalog's earnings last year — and its income is on the rise — a 22% increase over the previous four quarters.
