Happy birthday, Warner/Chappell Music…


Just don’t expect us to find a cake big enough to take the correct number of candles. Publisher Warner/Chappell Music is celebrating its 200th birthday with a range of products, including a website offering a full history of the company, videos and archive photos. On the physical side, 10 graphic designers have been commissioned to make artworks out of famous lyrics from the Warner/Chappell catalogue, which are being exhibited at the StolenSpace gallery in London before being sold to benefit charity Save the Children. A limited-edition songbook has also been produced, including content from George Michael, Dido, Gamble & Huff, Burt Bacharach, Brian Higgins and Muse’s Matt Bellamy. “Extraordinary songwriters have been, and will always be, at the centre of everything we do; which is why we’ve marked this remarkable occasion by focusing on songs and their composers,” says UK MD Richard Manners.
