McCartney Signs Exclusive Deal with AOL Music

Press Release: I was kind of surprised but relieved to hear that Paul McCartney has finally lightened up a bit to the digital scene - since he's reportedly "suspicious of digital music services." This announcement follows on the heels of his Live 8 webcast of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band with Bono...Apparently, AOL gave him a great pitch though and it will soon offer exclusive access to McCartney’s forthcoming single, “Fine Line” for 24-hours the day before the single ships. Fans can use AOL Music First Listen - available for free on the web - beginning Tuesday, July 26 at 12:01am EST.  The single is taken from his new studio album, “Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard”, which is expected to ship to regular outlets in mid-September and coincides with the September 16 launch of McCartney's new 37-city US tour...
