Beatles digital

Der Beatles-Katalog kommt 2008 digital.

The Beatles are coming online in 2008—for real this time, guys! That's what former Beatle Paul McCartney told Billboard yesterday, anyway. The artist's comments echo previous comments made by the widow of former Beatle George Harrison, Olivia, earlier this year. At the time, she said that the remastering had already been done and ready to go, although things were apparently being held up by album art.

"It's all happening soon. Most of us are all sort of ready. The whole thing is primed, ready to go—there's just maybe one little sticking point left, and I think it's being cleared up as we speak, so it shouldn't be too long," McCartney said to Billboard. "It's down to fine-tuning, but I'm pretty sure it'll be happening next year, 2008." (Ars Technica)

Genau 5 Jahre nachdem jeder, der am digitalen Backkatalog interessiert war, alle Songs als MP3, DRM-frei in drei Bitraten auf seinem iPod hat. Inklusive drei Mashupversionen von jedem einzelnen Song. Und die nochmal geremixed.
