“We have some great re-issue ideas in planning, and we also look forward to implementing an active synchronisation strategy for film and TV licenses,” he says. “We have worked with the SPZ Group [which owns ZTT] for many years via our successful exploitation of the Stiff Records catalogue, and we look forward to this new extension to our relationship.”
The first releases under the new deal will be via USM’s Salvo label in early 2010, with deluxe editions and boxed sets planned.
ZTT was home to artists including Art of Noise, Propaganda, Frankie Goes To Hollywood and 808 State.
It was formed by Trevor Horn, Jill Sinclair and Paul Morley in 1983 and enjoyed immediate success with Frankie Goes To Hollywood, whose first three singles all hit the UK Number One spot.
