Mccartney Signs With Major Label
Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney has agreed a deal with Mercury Records to release his new live album.
The superstar has shunned major labels since ending his four-decade long deal with Parlophone, choosing instead to release tracks through coffee shop chain Starbucks' label and independent company One Little Indian.
But MCCartney has struck a new deal with Universal-owned Mercury Records for the U.K. release of Good Evening New York, recorded over three nights at New York's Citi Field baseball stadium earlier this year (09).
The stadium replaced Shea Stadium, where the Beatles famously rocked out back in 1965.
MCCartney admits the three shows were very special: "It was three great nights for the band, and for me personally it was very exciting to be back opening a new stadium on the site of the old Shea Stadium, where we had played 44 years previously. Even more exciting because this time round you could hear us!"
