Republishing/remixing a previously released track???

Recommended Posts

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!
