Black sabbath back catalogue to be available digitally

The Black Sabbath back catalogue will be available digitally for the first time in the UK from Monday 30th March following a deal struck by Universal Music Catalogue UK, a division of Universal Music UK.

The release of this key digital catalogue is a major event for the digital market, and will for the first time see the Black Sabbath catalogue available for digital download and streaming services outside of North America.

Brian Rose, Managing Director, Commercial Division of Universal Music UK said: “The Black Sabbath catalogue is one of the most iconic catalogues to be missing from the digital market. We are delighted that from 30th March music fans will finally be able to download and stream Black Sabbath’s music from our digital partners. This is a significant step for us, and will be happening alongside the physical release of ‘Paranoid’ as a Deluxe Edition, showing our commitment to providing music fans with the very best both physically and digitally.”

From 30th March, 18 titles from the Black Sabbath catalogue will be available for download from retailers including iTunes; Amazon.com MP3 store; Tesco Digital; 7 Digital; Play.com, HMV.com MP3 stores and Lost Tunes.com.

The albums will also be available from streaming partners such as Spotify, Napster and We7. Also available for the first time will be ringtones of classic tracks Paranoid, War Pigs and Iron Man – featuring some of the most memorable riffs in rock history.

The release of the digital catalogue on 30th March, coincides with the physical release of ‘Paranoid’ Deluxe Edition.

Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward collectively formed Black Sabbath and from their eponymous debut album of 1970 onwards forged the most haunting and hypnotic rock sound of all time. From humble beginnings, the Birmingham quartet captured the minds of millions of rock fans around the world and continue to do so into the new millennium. The musical genre they created inspired countless musicians and spawned countless bands, all of which have attempted to emulate the Heavy Metal originators. Few have come close to rival the uniquely powerful musical make-up of the all powerful Black Sabbath.

Sabbath’s massive influence on modern music cannot be underestimated. VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock ranked them second, behind only Led Zeppelin, in importance and influence. Black Sabbath have sold multiple million albums worldwide to date.
