Concord Music Publishing ANZ Inks Publishing Deal with John Butler

Concord Music Publishing ANZ announce a new global publishing agreement with treasured Australian songwriter John Butler.

A household name in Australia for over two decades, the worldwide deal (excluding Japan), covers Butler’s full catalogue including hits ‘Better Than,’ ‘Zebra,’ and ‘Ocean’.

Earlier this month, Butler announced his new phase of music - The Four Seasons. These ‘seasons,’ each earmarked by an album, represent four different but connected musical journeys. The first is Running River, a meditative album that showcases a new side of Butler, offering listeners a journey of healing. Running River was released on last month via Jarrah Records and MGM.

With an impressive discography that includes seven studio albums and four No. 1 ARIA albums, Butler continues to captivate audiences across the globe.

Butler has developed a reputation as one of the best live blues and roots acts, gracing stages at countless festivals and selling out shows throughout Australia, Europe, and North America.

On the signing, John Butler stated: “I am very pleased to be joining the Concord Music Publishing family. It is exciting to be working closely with a team based out of Australia and being reconnected with people who I have worked with in previous years and feel as passionate about music as I do.  The compulsion to go on the enormous journey it takes to get these songs out of my head and heart is very deep and no small undertaking. First and foremost, it’s a very personal journey. But once I decide to share it one of most important parts is the why. I hope these stories, rhythms and melodies can help bring solace and be part of the soundtrack on someone’s else’s journey. So, who I choose to help bring those songs into people’s life is no small decision. I look forward to joining forces with Concord to help bring some more light into people lives in these turbulent and testing times. I am going to keep the team busy with three album releases in the next year! So, keep your work boots on. I know I will be.”
