Paul McCartney is said to be considering a second album deal with Starbucks following the enormous success of his recent, ‘Memory Almost Full’ album.

McCartney had originally planned to release just the one album with the coffee giant’s new music label, Hear Music, but has been so delighted with the sales of his album that he now plans to do the same again.

A music insider told the Daily Express: “Paul always had the business brain in The Beatles. Now that the new album is selling well, Paul has finally been convinced to sign a long-term deal with Starbucks and is expected to put pen to papers in the coming weeks. This means Starbucks will be responsible for Paul's albums for many years to come."

When it went on sale, ‘Memory Almost Full,’ entered the US charts at number three, selling 161,000 copies - making it the most successful studio album of his career.

On the international day of its release earlier this month, the album was also played to Starbucks customer’s non-stop in more than 10,000 chains around the world.

The success of McCartney’s album has also encouraged Sonic Youth to sign to the Hear Music label.
