Paul McCartney loves that new generations are still listening to The Beatles.

Paul McCartney has revealed the delay in getting The Beatles’ music onto iTunes was purely down to the politics of record companies.

Speaking exclusively to the Liverpool Echo, he explained:

"I think people thought it was us holding it up, but that was just the record companies. We've always wanted it to go onto iTunes. If that's the way people are listening now, then that's great."

He also showed how proud the remaining members of the internationally renowned band are that their music is still reaching new audiences:

“When we were in The Beatles we thought our popularity might last 10 years, if that. It lasted even longer than that, and now it's just gone mad. There's a whole new generation out there listening to those songs.”
