We recently auctioned the songwriter’s public performance royalties for this catalog — you can view that auction here. Now, up for bid is publishing income generated by this international pop offering, highlighted by “Came Here For Love” from DJ Sigala and English vocalist Ella Eyre.
As the winning bidder, you’ll collect from three royalty types: mechanical, public performance, and sync for the lifetime of the copyright on the included pop songs. Looking at last year’s earnings, mechanical and public performance royalties are evenly split at 35% and 36%, respectively, of total revenue. Streaming mechanicals — royalties paid for music that is streamed on-demand — brought in 25% of last year’s collective income.
This catalog’s highest-earning title “Came Here For Love” is performed by DJ Sigala and Ella Eyre and brought in 89% of last year’s royalties. Released in 2017, “Came Here For Love” is off Sigala’s debut studio album Brighter Days. The album itself was very successful with six U.K. Top 10 singles, including “Came Here For Love” hitting No. 6. To date, the song has 226 million spins on Spotify.
The tropical house track’s income increased significantly year-over-year thanks to mechanical and public performance royalties. In 2018, “Came Here For Love” also received notable sync revenue for the song’s use in TV and film. The single was used in a U.K. commercial campaign for Photobox, in the feature film Pitch Perfect 3, and the reality TV show Dancing With The Stars.
This collection also includes 2016’s “When The Bassline Drops” from Craig David and British rapper Big Narstie. The track brought in 9% of last year’s revenue and peaked at No. 10 on U.K. singles chart.
Income Mix. The winner of this auction can receive income in various ways:
Mechanical: Royalties paid to songwriters and publishers when music is sold (think CD or vinyl) but also when music is streamed (streaming mechanicals) “on-demand” (like Spotify).
Performance: Royalties paid to songwriters when music is performed publicly. Music played over the radio, in a restaurant or bar, or over a service like Spotify or Pandora is considered a public performance.
Synchronization: Royalties paid to songwriters and publishers for the licensing of a song in music for a movie, TV show, or commercial.
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 streaming mechanicals — royalties paid for music that is streamed on-demand — brought in 25% of last year’s total income.
Active Tours. Both Sigala and Craig David are currently on tour. Sigala has scheduled tour dates through November 2019, while Craig David has dates on the books into April 2020. Tours give artists the chance to solidify their current fan base and expand their reach to new listeners.
