Virgin Records

For more than 40 years, Virgin Records has been doing the unexpected and supporting the maverick, creative drive of its artists. The label has been home to some of the most groundbreaking and influential artists in music, including Mike Oldfield, Sex Pistols, Massive Attack, and the Spice Girls. In recent years, Virgin has catapulted artists such as Corinne Bailey Rae and Bastille onto the global stage, while continuing to develop exciting new talent with artists such as Eden xo, Ella Eyre, Grizfolk, Los 5, and Seinabo Sey. Since UMG’s acquisition of EMI, Virgin has stood as a pillar of the Capitol Music Group in the U.S., while its British operations were reborn as Virgin EMI Records in 2013.
