Andrew Lloyd Webber extends Universal contract to 40 years

Andrew Lloyd Webber has renewed his record contract with Universal to make it one of the longest continuous deals in the music world.

The deal covers digital and CD sales, publishing rights for film, TV and advertising. It will encompass his entire back catalogue which includes the original Jesus Christ Superstar album originally released in 1970.

The composer has signed a new long term contract ahead of his eagerly awaited Phantom follow up Love Never Dies, which is currently previewing at the Adelphi Theatre.

Lloyd Webber's music has sold in the tens of millions over the past forty years with Phantom of the Opera alone having exceeded 20 million.  Other hit productions have included Evita, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Cats.
