“We’re really excited to bring the Beatles’ music to iTunes,” said Sir Paul McCartney in a statement. “It’s fantastic to see the songs we originally released on vinyl receive as much love in the digital world as they did the first time around.”
“I am particularly glad to no longer be asked when the Beatles are coming to iTunes,” added Ringo Starr. “At last, if you want it-you can get it now-The Beatles from Liverpool to now! Peace and Love, Ringo.”
The Beatles had the best-selling album of the previous decade with their 1 compilation of 27 singles, which was released in 2000 and sold roughly 11.5 million copies by the end of 2009.
Perhaps the iTunes generation will now be able to anoint the rock legends the kings of the next decade in music sales, as well?
