How do I submit a demo to Universal Music Group?

Unfortunately, Universal Music Group does not accept unsolicited material. Your material must be recommended to one of our labels' A&R departments by a well-known manager, agent, producer, radio DJ or other music industry professional.

I am interested in licensing music for one of my projects (motion pictures, television and radio, commercial, live performance, home video, in-house video, ringtones, consumer products/merchandise, karaoke, and other projects)? How do I go about doing this?

If you would like to use the recording of a Universal Music Group artist please contact our copyright and licensing division at 310/865-0770.

If you would like to obtain rights to use a song or lyrics from a song that is administered or published by Universal Music Publishing Group you may contact UMPG’s Film & TV Licensing department at:

Telephone: 310/235-4721
Fax: 310 /235-4905
E-mail: umpg.licensing@umusic.com
Website: http://www.synchexpress.com or http://www.umpg.com

If you are unsure whether UMPG is the proper contact for your request, information on a song’s publishing company is usually found on the album’s packaging.
