London: Prince William and Kate Middleton can go straight from Westminster Abbey to your personal playlist.

Royal officials say that for the first time in history, the entire April 29 royal wedding ceremony including the couple`s vows will be released digitally within hours of the service though Britain`s Decca Records to online retailers such as iTunes.

William`s office and the record label said today an official audio recording of the event as a CD, vinyl or cassette will then hit stores on May 5.

Decca Records, which also recorded the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana, says the album will be produced by multi-Grammy-nominated producer Anna Barry.

Musicians confirmed to perform at the royal wedding include the Abbey`s choir, the Chapel Royal Choir and the London Chamber Orchestra.
