BMG has acquired the catalog of Cheyenne Records, which includes 600 master recordings from such German artists as No Angels, Bro’Sis, Overground, Nu Pagadi, Preluders, Monrose, Queensberry, Room 2012, Some & Any, and La Vive.
BMG said it will bolster the availability of the Cheyenne catalog with an integrated digital campaign, using cheyenneswelt.de as the base, allowing fans to deep dive deep into the label’s catalog. The company also said it will publish high-quality versions of the original official music videos. The catalog will hit digital platforms on Friday (Nov. 27).
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“The catalogue of Cheyenne Records is among the crown jewels of German pop music of the 2000s, and we are delighted to bring them back to the public,” Maximilian Kolb, BMG managing director GSA, said in a statement. “The acquisition shows BMG’s commitment to delivering the best service to artists and songwriters in the digital world.”
BMG says the deal will bring back streaming availability to No Angels, which has been absent from digital streaming platforms for five years. The company notes the group had sales of more than five million, making it the biggest-selling German girl band of all time. No Angels’ 2002 debut single, “Daylight In Your Eyes,” sold more than 500,000 copies within a week after its release, according to BMG.
Other hits that will now be available on digital platforms include Bro’Sis’ “I Believe” and Monrose’s “Shame.”
