STARBUCKS has signed PAUL McCARTNEY as the first artist on its new record label, HEAR MUSIC (NET NEWS 3/13). MARKETWATCH reports that McCARTNEY appeared via satellite at STARBUCKS' annual shareholder meeting today and said the yet-untitled album would be released in early JUNE.
"I've been working on it for a little while," McCARTNEY said. "The songs are a little bit retrospective, some are of now, and some hark back to the past. All of them are songs I'm very proud of."
"Talking to a BEATLE -- wow," STARBUCKS Chairman HOWARD SCHULTZ said to the shareholders assembled at the meeting. "Who would have thought?"
