Warner Music Group is making some major moves over in Berlin.
They just unveiled a swanky new creative hub in the heart of the city, housed in a historic 19th-century building called Schicklerhaus. This place is designed to cater to all the needs of WMG's artists, songwriters, employees, and partners. It's got an interior performance area, not one, not two, but four rooftop terraces, and some high-tech collaboration rooms with Dolby Atmos immersive sound. Fancy, right?
The bigwigs from Warner Music Group, including CEO Robert Kyncl, were there to celebrate the grand opening with over 700 guests, including a bunch of famous artists and songwriters.
Warner Music Central Europe and Warner Chappell Music Germany have been hitting some high notes lately. One of their singles, "Komet" by Udo Lindenberg and Apache 207, stayed at the top of the German Singles Charts for a whopping 21 weeks. Ayliva, a Warner Chappell Music songwriter, even became the top artist on Spotify Germany in August 2023.
And if that's not impressive enough, Warner Chappell Music Germany claims to be the top domestic publisher in Germany, with six songs in Germany's Top 10 singles chart for the first half of 2023. The future seems bright for the world of music.
