Washington: Sir Paul McCartney has signed a deal with Decca almost 50 years after the record label rejected The Beatles.

Decca bosses became the butt of music industry jokes after they rejected the Fab Four, a website reported.

They had told the band’s manager, Brian Epstein, that his group had “no future in showbusiness”.

But now they have signed on McCartney and he will release his new ballet score ‘Ocean’s Kingdom’ through Decca in October this year.
