Negotiations to put The Beatles‘ back catalogue on the iTunes Store have “stalled”, according to Paul McCartney.

The former Beatle explained that Apple Corps and EMI haven’t been able to agree on the terms that will result in the band’s work finally being available to buy online.

McCartney told BBC News: “We’d like to do it. We are very for it, we’ve been pushing it. But there are a couple of sticking points, I understand.

EMI want something we’re not prepared to give ’em. It’s between EMI and The Beatles I think – what else is new?

“But I really hope it will happen because I think it should.”

All four of The Beatles‘ solo releases are currently available on iTunes, along with a number of covers of Beatles material.
