Litmus Music, a music rights business backed by Carlyle’s Global Credit platform, has acquired Keith Urban’s master recordings catalog, which includes ten multi-platinum, platinum or gold certified studio albums and a greatest hits compilation. Among the catalog’s highlights are twenty-four #1 songs and a record-breaking thirty-six consecutive Top 5s. As part of the deal Litmus will continue to collaborate in close partnership with Urban and his management team Borman Entertainment as Urban continues work in the studio finishing his next album, due in 2023.
Urban’s authenticity and talent has helped establish him as one of the most successful and well-respected artists in the world. He's won four GRAMMY© Awards, thirteen CMAs, fifteen ACMs, three AMAs, two People's Choice Awards, five ARIA Awards, and is the only male country artist to simultaneously appear atop the album charts in Australia, Canada and The United States three different times across his career.
