Legendary singer-songwriter Paul Simon has sold the complete collection of his songs to Sony Music Publishing.

Sony Music Publishing announced that its agreement includes Simon’s classic songs spanning more than six decades, from his time as a member of Simon & Garfunkel through his extraordinary career as a solo artist.

One of the greatest and most celebrated singer-songwriters of all time, Simon has given birth to classic hits such as “The Sound of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “The Boxer,” “Mrs. Robinson,” “Homeward Bound,” “I Am A Rock,” “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard,” “50 Ways To Leave Your Lover,” “Still Crazy After All These Years,” and “Graceland.”

Simon said he is pleased to have Sony Music Publishing be the custodian of his songs for the coming decades.

“I began my career at Columbia/Sony Records and it feels like a natural extension to be working with the Publishing side as well,” the winner of 16 Grammy awards added.
