Current iTunes Digital Release card titles available at Starbucks include KT Tunstall's "Drastic Fantastic" and Eddie Vedder's "Into The Wild" soundtrack.

Beatles music tracks as well as solo tracks of the artists have just recently been added to the iTunes store, due to a legal dispute between Apple and the Beatles’ Apple Corps music publishing firm (controlled by Paul McCartney Ringo Starr and the widows of George Harrison and John Lennon) that was resolved in May of 2006. Paul McCartney’s first songs became available on iTunes in May of this year, John Lennon solo tracks followed in August of this year.

John Lennon’s music tracks were first published digitally in November of 2005 on Rhapsody, Napster, MSN and Yahoo! Unlimited.
