The newly formed record label from Starbucks Entertainment and Concord music group will release Paul McCartney's first new studio album in nearly two years, it was announced on Thursday.

The album is slated for release early this summer and will be available at all music retail outlets and Starbucks locations internationally.

The announcement was made at the Starbucks annual meeting of shareholders in Seattle where McCartney made a surprise appearance via satellite.

"For me the great thing is the commitment and the passion and the love of music, which as an artist is good to see," said McCartney. "It's a new world now and people are thinking of new ways to reach the people and for me that's always been my aim."

Starbucks Entertainment and Concord Music Group's past collaborations include Ray Charles' "Genius Loves Company," and Sergio Mendes' "timeless."
