Sex Pistols co-founder Glen Matlock signs worldwide solo deal with Universal Music Group for undisclosed sum.

Sex Pistols co-founder Glen Matlock has signed a worldwide solo deal with Universal Music Group (UMG).

Under the terms of the deal, Matlock, who has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will release a new album, described as “timely and politically pertinent” in 2022. UMG will also re-release a number of the bassist’s previous solo albums.

“I am over the moon to have now signed to Universal Music Group, who will be releasing my brand spanking new album, and I can’t wait to get cracking with the team,” Matlock said in a statement. “Watch this space.”

As a founding member of the Sex Pistols, Matlock is responsible for some of the world’s most iconic punk anthems including “Anarchy In The UK,” “God Save The Queen” and “Pretty Vacant.”

After leaving the group in 1977 he went on to form a band called Rich Kids with Midge Ure and has collaborated with artists including Iggy Pop, and Primal Scream. He has also played live with artists such as the reformed Faces, made up of Ronnie Wood and Rod Stewart, among others.

Matlock has released a number of studio solo albums including “Good to Go,” which featured guitarist Earl Slick, who’s previously worked with David Bowie and John Lennon, and Stray Cats’ drummer Slim Jim Phantom.

“But I can’t really see that happening. They’re both a bit older now and they’ve other things going on. But the phone will ring, and something else will turn up.”
