Nelson was at Columbia Records (CBS) from 1975-1993. Under the new deal, Willie will release five new albums for Sony.

“I’m really happy to be back home with Sony Music. We have been partners for many years; all the way back to Pamper and Tree Music. We share a great history, and I’m looking forward to many more years together,” said Willie Nelson in a statement.

Part of Willie’s new deal will allow him to mine his back catalogue and curate the catalog of previously released and unreleased songs for newly compiled collections and bonus material.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to work with Willie on this landmark partnership,” said Adam Block, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Legacy Recordings. “There’s a natural and organic relationship between new recording projects and catalog activity that promises to ensure the lasting importance of Willie and his music.”

Wilson has had a six-decade career and has recorded over 200 albums in that time.

As a songwriter, he has written classics for others including “Crazy” (Patsy Cline), “Hello Walls” (Faron Young), “Funny How Time Slips Away” (Billy Walker), “Night Life” (Ray Price).

Willie is a seven-time Grammy Award winner and co-founder of Live Aid.
