JONI MITCHELL is following the lead of PAUL MCCARTNEY by inking with coffee giant STARBUCKS to release her comeback album.
HEAR MUSIC, a record label formed in partnership with STARBUCKS CORP. and the CONCORD MUSIC GROUP, said WEDNESDAY that MITCHELL is its second signing. "Shine," her first album of new compositions since 1998, will be released on SEPTEMBER 25.
MCCARTNEY's album "Memory Almost Full" came out last month and was played relentlessly at STARBUCKS franchises, where listeners could purchase it with their coffee. The disc has sold 447,000 copies, 45% of them in STARBUCKS stores, the company said.
