Sir Paul McCartney has teamed up with HP to put his life’s work into an accessible online archive.
The Beatles singer is getting by with a little help from his friends to digitise his
collection of cover artwork, photographs, paintings, film and videos, as well songs from his Beatles and Wings days.
While most of the world is trying to figure out a way to remove Wings from its collective memory, HP is trying to preserve it. HP will be transferring the physical copies into high-definition digital built on a ‘private cloud’ for McCartney’s company MPL, served from a data centre. It’s going to be A Hard Days Night.
Sir McCartney said in a statement: “I’ve always been interested in creative ideas and new ways of reaching people, so this is a really exciting initiative for me.
“I hope it will allow people who might be interested to access parts of our archives they might otherwise not be able to. I’m looking forward to working with HP on this project.”
This is the first time HP has collaborated with an ex Beatle. We hear its first choice was Ringo Starr but he was busy.
