Paul McCartney’s record label Parlophone, part of the EMI group, has confirmed that they will be releasing his entire back catalogue across digital platforms, as well as the traditional physical formats.
Records from the former Beatle’s first solo album “McCartney” through his Wings era to his new album “Memory Almost Full” will now be made available digitally for the first time ever.
The McCartney digital campaign could possibly signal that the much-hyped idea of the Beatles back catalogue being made available in this way could soon come to fruition.
Tony Wadsworth, chairman of EMI Music UK said, “Paul McCartney’s post-Beatles catalogue, spanning four decades, is one of the great treasures of popular music. EMI is proud to be introducing Paul’s music to the digital marketplace.”
Having recently received an Classical Brit Award for his album “Ecce Cor Meum”, McCartney will release his new album “Memory Almost Full” on June 4.
