EMI has confirmed plans to release the entire Paul McCartney solo catalogue through online music services for the first time.

EMI Music has retained Paul McCartney’s solo catalogue and is preparing a comprehensive re-launch, including new digital campaigns as well as physical re-releases, the label explained.

The result of the decision is that music from the former Beatle – including his catalogue of material recorded with Wings – will be made available across all digital platorms "shortly", the label explained.

Tony Wadsworth, chairman and CEO, EMI Music UK said: “Paul McCartney’s post-Beatles catalogue, spanning four decades, is one of the great treasures of popular music.  EMI is proud to be introducing Paul’s music to the digital marketplace.”

The catalogue includes Paul’s first solo album ‘McCartney’ through his releases with Wings to his latest critically-acclaimed studio album ‘Chaos And Creation In The Backyard’.

Singles to be released digitally will include: ‘Band On The Run’, ‘My Love’, ‘Let ‘Em In’, and ‘Jet’.

He releases his next studio album “Memory Almost Full” on 4 June 2007.
