Songs Music Publishing, also known as SONGS, is a music publishing company founded by Matt Pincus and joined by partners Ron Perry in 2004 and Carianne Marshall in 2006. The company has offices in New York City, Los Angeles and London.

SONGS represents songwriters and producers across all genres of music. SONGS' growth has been achieved through the signing of worldwide, exclusive co-publishing agreements with individual writers and through catalog acquisitions.[1]

In June 2017, SONGS Music Publishing signed worldwide co-publishing deals with four songwriters in contemporary music: Xxxtentacion, Linus Eklow, S1, and Andrew Wyatt.[3]

In September 2017, Songs Music Publishing was put up for sale for over $160 million.[4] In December 2017, SONGS was acquired by Kobalt Music Group.[5]
