Mick Hucknall learns to love Warners again

A rare piece of good news for the majors, as an errant son returns to the fold: Mick Hucknall has made his peace with Warners over his back catalogue.

He's been in a huff over who owns the tracks since 2000 - even, at one point, re-recording them - but now has agreed a fifty/fifty split on ownership with the label.

Mick's happy, Warners are happy. Everybody's happy.

We're now in for a glitzy, expensive Simply Red official best of campaign.

Okay, but still: Mick and Warners are happy.
