iTunes offers new Paul McCartney album – followed by the back catalogue

Well, it’s not exactly The Beatles’ back catalogue, but I suppose getting your hands on Paul McCartney is the next best thing for Apple.

Yes, you can pre-order Macca’s new album, titled Memory Almost Full, via iTunes. It’s an exclusive for Apple and if you do pre-order it, they’ll even throw in the “Dance Tonight” music video when the album is delivered and the single “Ever Present Past”, immediately upon pre-ordering the new album.

But that’s only half of the story . Apple has now got its hands on Paul McCartney’s full catalogue of 25 solo albums will be available for the first time digitally on iTunes later this month. “Paul McCartney is one of the greatest musicians of all time, and we’re extremely excited to offer his first digitally distributed album on iTunes,” said Apple chief Steve Jobs.

Now as some of those McCartney albums feature Beatles songs, does that mean Apple has technically got its hands on The Beatles for download?
