McCartney May Have A Second Cup

Paul McCartney has been selling loads of records at Starbucks and the former Beatle knows a good thing when he's found it. Now, a report from WENN says Sir Paul may release another record through the coffee chain.

Sales were so brisk for his new record on Starbucks' Hear Music label that Mercury Almost Full shot to number three on the U.S. charts. A so-called "insider" is quoted by the British newspaper Daily Express as saying, "Paul always had the business brain in The Beatles. Now that the new album is selling well, Paul has finally been convinced to sign a long-term deal with Starbucks and is expected to put pen to papers in the coming weeks. This means Starbucks will be responsible for Paul's albums for many years to come."

Many thought this wouldn't work and that Paul would re-sign with EMI, who he was with for over 40 years after this experiment with Starbucks. Even McCartney seemingly had doubts as he only initially signed a one record deal. Now, it looks like Paul won't be getting back to where he once belonged anytime soon.
