Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can Mary do an interview for my book/magazine/radio show?

Mary does not give interviews any more. Her daughter Jessica is available though and runs the record label, and has done many interviews on Mary's behalf.

2. How can I get in touch with Mary?

Email us! Mary regrets she is unable to reply to fan mail. You can find her on Twitter though.

3. I've got an enquiry about The Beatles/Apple Records, or I want to ask Mary about her time there.

Mary is mentioned in many books about The Beatles, and has talked about it in some interviews (see Press page) and there's not much more to add, but you can ask us.

4. Can Mary sign my CD or can I have a signed photo?

Sorry, Mary does not sign autographs any more. Incidentally, beware of autographs offered for sale on eBay purporting to be from Mary - they may well be faked. Any postal/email requests sent to us will be ignored.

5. When will Mary perform live again?

Mary prefers not to perform live any more. But she loves recording and is still singing. There are performances on Youtube and we hope to add more from our Space Lounge.

6. Where can I find other albums by Mary?

eBay or Amazon are best bets. MHM only deals with post-Apple releases.

7. Will there be more new albums by Mary?

Mary is still writing and recording and anything new will be released by Mary Hopkin Music.

If you would like to be kept informed of new releases, please sign up for our mailing list on the home page.

8. I want to use "Those Were the Days" in some way.

The song: If you want to re-record TWTD, you can do. All you have to do is contact PRS for Music who give licences for recording published songs. If you want to sing/play it live, the venue where you're performing should be covered by a PRS licence who will collect money from that performance and pass it on to the copyright holders.

Mary didn't write TWTD, nor did Paul McCartney. It was composed by Boris Fomin with new lyrics by Gene Raskin. The lyrics and melody are still under copyright. Mary's performance copyright of the song is either owned by Apple Records or by us, depending on the recording.

9. Where can I find "All My Days" or "Where's Jack"?

Sorry, we have no idea and since we don't own the recordings we have no plans to release them.

10. How can I buy CDs?

Directly from us! We do distribute through a couple of companies but we are the main distributors.

11. Do you sell wholesale?

We can do a reduced price for volume sales. Please email us with your requirements.
