Paul McCartney has signed to Capitol Records, the label announced Wednesday.

The new contract encompasses the iconic singer’s entire body of post-Beatles work, spanning from his 1970 solo debut McCartney, through his decade with Wings and dozens of collaborative efforts, and to his last entry, 2013’s New.

“This is genuinely exciting for me,” McCartney said in a release. “Not only was Capitol my first U.S. record label, but the first record I ever bought was Gene Vincent’s ‘Be-Bop-A-Lula’ on the Capitol label.”

He’s currently at work on his 17th studio solo album. His catalogue previously belonged to California music company Concord. Over the years, McCartney has put out projects through a number of labels, including Hear Music, Parlophone, and The Beatles-founded Apple.

“It would be simply impossible to overstate what an honor it is to welcome Paul back to Capitol,” said Lucian Grainge, Chairman and CEO of Capitol’s parent company, Universal Music Group. “It’s a homecoming of one of the greatest musical artists of all time to the label that first helped bring his incredible music to the world.”
