According to Music Ally streaming/download start up has hatched a deal with Sir Paul McCartney to include his live versions of a load of Beatles classic. So while there’s no Strawberry Fields or any other John classics, we7 users can stream Hey Jude, Eleanor Rigby and Yesterday and even embed them on other sites too

“The Beatles are everywhere today with the release of their newly remastered work and the launch of Beatles Rock Band – but to date, their catalogue has not been made available through any legal online music services,” says CEO Steve Purdham. “we7 listens to what our users want and as a result, we’re giving them the chance to listen to the best line up of classic Beatles tracks sung by Sir Paul himself. You just need to hit the play button!”
