  • Republishing/remixing a previously released track???

    Hey everyone! I'm trying to figure out how to do this, and figured I'd post here since you guys all seem so knowledgeable about the music biz/legal side of things.

    So here's the story:-

    I digitally released a track about 18 months ago on my little label, through a distributor. The track is available on the usual services; Spotify, iTunes, etc.

    The track is registered for songwriting/publisher royalties with my PRO here in Ireland, and for master licensing/copyright/mechanicals with PPI - the company which collects on behalf of master recording owners (in this case, my little record company) here.

    A publisher has recently expressed an interest in licensing the track for the soundtrack of a movie, but wants me to get the track professionally remixed, as the sonics are, admittedly, 2nd rate.

    This is easily do-able, as there are 2 Harrison equipped studios within 20 miles of here, and i know the owners and personnel from both through my day job.

    What I'm wondering/worried about is how to go about publishing/releasing this remixed version? Would it be better to delete all releases and associated PRO/master recording data for the original version of this track, before releasing the new version? Or is there some other way to re-release an updated mix, ensuring that all applicable royalties go to the right person? (i.e. me)

    Please bear in mind that this is not a remix in the edm/techno sense. The stems/arrangement will be identical to the original - just an improvement (hopefully!) over my original ITB PTLE 7.4 mix which was done on my little workstation here at home.

    I hope these questions make sense!
