Music Market is Flourishing! … Global Music Collections Revenue Up 28% to Record $11.4B in 2022 




Digital has become the biggest source of income around the world, driving rights management organizations to new highs.

Global music rights revenue collections reached EUR10.83 billion ($ 11.4 billion) in 2022, according to CISAC, the trade organization of collective management societies. That’s a new record that reflects growth of 28% over 2021, as live concert revenue continues to recover from the pandemic and digital income keeps growing.

Income from concerts– the royalties collected from the public performance of songs being played live– was up 185.7% based on a sample of 100 societies, since different organizations account for that revenue differently. And since these numbers are from 2022, when the concert business still hadn’t fully recovered, next year’s numbers will be better still.

The real change is in digital, though, which is now worth EUR4.08 billion ($ 4.3 billion), up 33.5% from 2021 and almost double its value from 2019. It now accounts for 37.7% of collections revenue– marking the first time it has been the biggest category– and is likely to be the main engine of growth for years to come. The TV and radio category, traditionally the largest source of revenue, is now No. 2 behind digital with $3.55 billion.

The CISAC Global Collections Report tracks money taken in by collective management organizations for authors’ rights– composers and publishers in the music business, plus audiovisual creators, writers and more. (Neighboring rights revenue for recordings is not included.) More than 90% of the money comes from song rights– specifically, the funds that flow through societies rather than through direct deals.

By any measure, the growth in the CISAC report is remarkable– a record both for the revenue collected and year-on-year growth. And while some of that reflects the unprecedented disappearance and return of the live business, digital growth has been, and will continue to be, steady.

” This is a remarkable return to growth as our whole sector fully recovers from the disastrous three-year pandemic,” said CISAC director general Gadi Oron in the announcement of the results. “While live and public performance have bounced back strongly, the recovery is driven most of all by digital which has now become creators’ largest source of income.”

Much of this growth reflects the changing role of collecting societies in the streaming era. Rather than just represent and license rights in the market in which they operate, societies also compete online. The biggest of the societies– PRS, SACEM and others– now license online rights from writers in most countries.

The growth is worldwide, too. All of the top ten music markets increased collections revenue, with an average growth rate of more than 25%. The biggest market is the United States with EUR2.616 billion ($ 2.759) and 30.5% growth; then France, with EUR1.325 billion ($ 1.398 billion) and more than 39% growth. Rounding out the top 10 are the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Italy, Australia, Canada, Spain and Korea.

Imogen Load Photos memories of the ‘Tidy’ Recording Session to Commemorate ‘1989 (Taylor’s Variation)’ Release




” This is Taylor playing a bada– card to stay in control of her work,” she wrote about Swift.

Imogen Heap, who co-wrote and co-produced the 1989 track “Clean” with Taylor Swift, penned a note about her experience recording the 13th song on the 2014 album and re-recording it for the just-released version, 1989 (Taylor’s Version)

” Today marks the release of ‘Taylor’s version’ of 1989 … the album originally released in 2014. The latest in line towards @taylorswift’s endeavour to re-record every album she’s ever done as part of an old record deal,” Heap wrote Friday (Oct. 27) on Instagram, where she shared photos from the studio.

” This is Taylor playing a bada– card to stay in control of her work in a commercial music industry that largely works against musicians,” she said.

Heap captioned a picture in her post: “Here’s me in my studio re-recording my bits on Clean last year, almost a decade on from the day Taylor swooped in to visit me at my home the @theround. house for 10 hours between 2 sold out shows at the 02 arena!”

She also captioned a snapshot of the two when they first worked together, writing, “downstairs in the @thehideaway. studio … Two ladies, in a room. We wrote and produced 90% of the track and still managed to eat lunch and dinner!”

” Now you can have fun playing spot the difference,” joked Heap, who thanked Swift on Instagram “for inviting me into your world!”

In a 2014 interview with the writer of this article, Swift recalled that “meeting Imogen Heap was an amazing experience for me because she was all I listened to in high school. Getting to not only meet her, but work with her and watch to see what she does in the studio, was really inspiring.”




Taylor Swift’s ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’ Off to Big Start After First Day of Release



So what did Swift first say upon first meeting one of her musical idols? “Hi, I’m so happy to meet you?” she answered with a laugh. “I try to keep it in check. I try to act as, like, normal as humanly possible.”

” The song ‘Clean’ is one that I wrote about sort of coming out of a relationship or trying to move on from some struggle that you had in your life, and feeling kind of tarnished by it,” Swift said during our chat, which took place before the release of 2014’s 1989 “And it kind of talks about how if you really allow yourself to feel pain, I think maybe it’s easier to get past it. For most people that I’ve known who’ve fought through struggle, a lot of them who have really just faced the pain head on have come out OK a lot faster than the ones who just pretended to be in denial of it.”

” Almost every line in that song is one that I’m proud of,” she told me.

Meanwhile, when the original 1989 was released that year, Heap admitted on her blog that prior to actually working together, she ‘d wrongly assumed Swift didn’t really write her own music.

” I have to be honest here and say that I ever so slightly had not done my homework on Taylor Swift but had done what I HATE others do of me, which is to pre-judge a person based on assumptions,” Heap wrote. “I had assumed Taylor didn’t write too much of her own music (as is the case with many young, extremely successful artists these days who sell a shed load of records), and was likely puppeteered by an aging gang of music executives.”

At the time Heap wanted to make it known that she ‘d been “reading the odd report or tweet here and there that the reason the lyrics to ‘Clean’ are so good is because I wrote the song with her but FOR SURE they are all hers she deserves all the credit!”

See Imogen Heap’s full note about re-recording “Clean” for 1989 (Taylor’s Version) below and on Instagram Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version) sold over 250,000 copies in the U.S. on its first day of release, according to initial reports to data tracking firm Luminate. After just one day, the album has the third-largest sales week of 2023.
