Asylum was founded in 1971 by David Geffen, and operated as a rock label. In 1972, it was acquired by Warner Communications and merged with Elektra Records to become "Elektra/Asylum Records." David Geffen remained in charge of the company until 1975, when he resigned and retired, due to health problems.

Elekta/Asylum Records was renamed Elektra Entertainment in 1989, while 'Asylum Records' broke off into a subsidiary label underneath. In 1992, Asylum was reformatted into a semi-successful country music label based out of Nashville, still operated by Elektra. As the 1990s progressed, the company was placed on hold and did little or nothing.

After several years, it was revived again in 2004. The "NEW" Asylum Records is an urban music-based label that is independently managed through Warner Music Group, with some of its acts released in conjuction with Warner Brothers Records and others through Atlantic Records.
