Prince Cuts Ties With ‘Universal’

According to That Grape Juice, Prince has announced the arrival of his very own publishing company today, splitting with former publishers ‘Universal Music Publishing.’Named NPG Music Publishing, the limited liability company will see Prince publish his own music and currently seeks to place jams from his discography in  ”film, television, video games and the commercial realm”, just one month after building the organization.  Following in the footsteps of The Beatles’ frontman Paul McCartney, the ‘Beautiful Ones’ move marks the first time his material has been controlled independently in more than twenty years, already securing a placement for his music on Fox’s ‘New Girl’ in the February of this year.

Sidebar: Prince is like gimme me all my money.  Kudos.
