    “Prince’s last publishing deal was with Universal Music,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. “He had been inked to Kobalt Music for a label services deal, but chose to release his latest single through L.A. Reid’s Epic label.”

    “NPG Music Publishing is now actively seeking placement for some of Prince’s best-loved songs in film, television, video games and the commercial realm,” the release added. The company’s first major placement was Prince’s new single “FALLINLOVE2NITE” on Fox’s “New Girl.”
