UMG acquires Frank Zappa’s full estate, including recordings and song catalogue

Universal Music Group has announced an agreement with Frank Zappa’s family to acquire the rock guitarist and composer’s estate. The deal covers the musician’s prolific recordings, publishing catalogue, film archive, name and likeness, and the complete contents of ‘The Vault’, a storage facility that houses the late Zappa’s life’s work. With the acquisition, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) and Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG), will build on the company’s existing partnership with the Zappa Trust to amplify Frank Zappa’s four-decade career as a brilliant musician and iconoclast.
