Lindsey Buckingham has sold the entirety of his of publishing rights, including both his publishing and writer’s share, across 161 songs to music conglomerate Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited, according to Music Business Worldwide. The company had previously snagged 25 percent of the former-Fleetwood Mac leader's song catalogue through its buyout from the Kobalt company. In the new deal, Hipgnosis also will own a 50 percent share of any unreleased Buckingham compositions.
Among the classic tunes included in the deal are “Go Your Own Way,” “Monday Morning,” “I'm So Afraid,” “Never Going Back Again,” “Second Hand News,” “Tusk,” “I Know I'm Not Wrong,” “Walk A Thin Line,” “Big Love,” “Trouble,” “Holiday Road,” and “Go Insane,” along with his portions of “World Turning” and “The Chain,” among many, many more.
In 2020, Stevie Nicks sold 80 percent of her publishing to Hipgnosis' rival Primary Wave for an estimated $80 million. There's been no dollar amount announced for Buckingham's new deal.
