Richard Marx Signs with BMG to Release First Album in Five Years

Grammy award-winning performer, songwriter and producer Richard Marx has signed a new global recordings and catalog deal with BMG. This summer, Marx is slated to release the first new song from his upcoming new studio album, due later this fall, marking his first new album in five years.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of his hit album Repeat Offender (originally released April 26, 1989), Marx will release Repeat Offender Revisited via BMG – a new collection featuring newly recorded studio, live and acoustic versions of songs from the original album. Kicking off the release of Repeat Offender Revisited, Marx is now premiering a brand-new video for his song "Right Here Waiting", showcasing live footage from various performances of the song throughout the past 30 years.

Additionally, BMG has digitally re-released several catalog titles including Stories To Tell (2010) – a double album featuring new versions of his best-known songs, A Night Out With Friends (2012) – a live album featuring special guests JC Chasez, Hugh Jackman; Marx’s first-ever holiday album Christmas Spirit (2012), his last studio release Beautiful Goodbye (2014), and Now and Forever: The Ballads (2014) – a compilation of his most popular love songs.

Marx said, “I’m really happy to be partnering with the folks at BMG for the next chapter of my career, and I can’t wait for people to hear all the new music I’ve been working on.”

Thomas Scherer, EVP, Repertoire & Marketing, Los Angeles, said, “As one of the most versatile songwriters and performers in music, Richards’ multi-faceted career as a hitmaker is nothing short of extraordinary. We are incredibly honored that he has entrusted us with his timeless music and chosen BMG as his new home. Richard Marx now and forever!”

As a songwriter and producer, Marx’s successes include the songs ‘To Where You Are’ (Josh Groban), ‘This I Promise You’ (NSYNC), and ‘Love Hot Summer’ (Keith Urban), as well as a Grammy award for Song of the Year for co-authoring Luther Vandross’ ‘Dance with My Father’.
