Eric Clapton’s catalog of studio albums is moving from Warner Records to Surfdog Records in October.

The marketing, licensing, and administrative rights will transfer to Surfdog on October 1, 2022. Clapton’s catalog of studio albums recorded between 1983 and 2010, plus three live albums, are included as part of the deal. So why the move? According to the press release, the changing landscape of the music streaming business is partly responsible.

“Eric has enjoyed working with many individuals at Warner over the years, but with the greatly changed landscape of the music business and the increasing significance of streaming income, it has been decided to take a different approach to the marketing of the catalog,” the press release reads.

“In recent years, Eric has collaborated with and been impressed by Dave Kaplin and Surfdog on several new record releases in North America, including his last four studio albums, and is also now looking forward to working with Surfdog worldwide in relation to this catalog.”
