The Beatles may finally invade online streaming.
The rock band’s entire catalogue will likely become available online on an unspecified streaming website starting Christmas Eve, according to a Billboard report, which cites an industry source.
A selection of the band’s massive library of 309 songs already stream at random on Pandora, but following lengthy negotiations, Apple Records’ will expand to streaming.
The band’s label has been historically slow to releasing the Fab Four’s decade-long music career on CD and, much later, for download on iTunes.
The lag is not a habit of Sir Paul McCartney’s career. His catalogue has made stints on streaming services since at least 2010 despite brief licenses fracas.
The former Beatles bass guitarist’s career is no where close to slowing down. McCartney collaborated with Kanye West and Rihanna in early 2015.
He made a surprise guest appearance at the tail end of “Saturday Night Live” alongside Bruce Springsteen.
