Starbucks' music label debuts with new Paul McCartney C-D to be released Tuesday

SEATTLE (AP) -- It'll be a nonstop dose of Paul McCartney tomorrow at Starbucks.

The coffee giant estimates that some six (m) million people will be among the first to hear McCartney's "Memory Almost Full" album as the company's new record label releases its first C-D.

The album will be playing on a continuous loop throughout the day in more than ten-thousand stores in 29 countries.

Starbucks co-founded its Hear Music label with Concord Music Group in March. McCartney was in the final stages of recording and mastering his latest set of songs when he signed a one-album deal with Hear Music, becoming the label's first artist.

The president of Starbucks' entertainment division says he's not worried about customers or baristas succumbing to McCartney overload, saying he thinks they'll be "really excited."
