Apple and Apple have finally settled their differences and made the Beatles available for the first time on iTunes, after teasing an unforgettable announcement since yesterday.
Single albums are available for NZD$21.99 each, double albums for NZD$35.99. Individual songs will set you back NZD$2.39 each.
The Beatles Box Set costs NZD$269.99 and contains the 13 re-mastered studio albums with iTunes LPs and mini-documentaries, “Past Masters,” and the “Live at the Washington Coliseum, 1964” concert film.
Some quotes from The Beatles:
“We’re really excited to bring the Beatles’ music to iTunes,” said Sir Paul McCartney. “It’s fantastic to see the songs we originally released on vinyl receive as much love in the digital world as they did the first time around.”
“I am particularly glad to no longer be asked when the Beatles are coming to iTunes,” said Ringo Starr. “At last, if you want it—you can get it now—The Beatles from Liverpool to now! Peace and Love, Ringo.”
And one from the boss:
“We love the Beatles and are honoured and thrilled to welcome them to iTunes,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “It has been a long and winding road to get here. Thanks to the Beatles and EMI, we are now realising a dream we’ve had since we launched iTunes ten years ago.”
