Tame Impala's Kevin Parker no longer has the rights to his songwriting catalog. The singer recently revealed he sold the ownership to Sony Music Publishing.

In a statement, Parker said this isn't something he thought about very lightly as the songs are the fruit of his blood, sweat and creativity over the years. However, he said he doesn't think his songs could be any safer than in the hands of Sony. On top of all of Parker's past releases, the deal also encompasses off of his future releases with Tame Impala.

He continued:

“I have a lot of love and trust for the Sony publishing family and have only had great experiences with Damian Trotter and the rest of the gang worldwide. I don’t think my songs could be in any safer hands than Sony’s, and I’m excited for the future and happy I can keep working with them on whatever the future brings.”

In addition to his four studio albums and multiple singles with Tame Impala, Parker’s songwriting catalog includes work with Rihanna, Travis Scott, Mick Jagger, Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Gorillaz, Mark Ronson, The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, Daft Punk & More.
