Beatles Promote "Rock Band," Album Downloads
The last album recorded by the Beatles will be the first made available digitally. The seminal rock group's 1969 classic "Abbey Road" this fall will become the first album by the band to come out in a downloadable version.
The music is being released this fall in conjunction with the release of the "Beatles Rock Band" game, the entertainment Web site TheWrap.com reported.
The band's surviving members, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, announced at E3 Monday, along with the widows of John Lennon and George Harrison, that the song "All You Need is Love" will be released digitally to Xbox 360 users this September, leading to the release of "Abbey Road" and a rollout of remastered versions of the band's catalog.
