Sony Music Publishing announced Wednesday that it has acquired Simon’s catalog, which includes six decades of music, from his time in Simon & Garfunkel to his solo career.

His well-known songs include “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “The Boxer,” “The Sound of Silence,” “Mrs. Robinson” and “Homeward Bound.” Sony Music Publishing also represents catalogs by Motown, Michael Jackson, The Beatles and Carole King.
