Rumours of former Beatle signing for American coffee shop giant

In what may be the most unexpected of musical collaborations Sir Paul McCartney has been tipped as one of the first signings for Starbucks Records.

With the companies initial foray into music resulting in the Grammy Award winning Ray Charles duets album Genius Loves Company, talk of a big name signing is not a surprise.

McCartney’s name though is. Starbucks have previously been under fire due to some of their allegedly more underhand methods. Sir Paul also recently voiced his support for Oregon’s Measure 27 to label genetically engineered food.

It remains to be seen if anything more will come of this.
