Obamas, rejoice! You may not have been invited to the royal wedding, but you'll be able to experience the entire thing on your computer!
Royal officials have announced that Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding will be given a digital release on iTunes and other "online retailers."
The official audio recording of the wedding will be released through Britain's Decca Records on the Internet, and then it will hit stores on May 5.
Hmm…wonder what section we'll be able to find the recording in Best Buy…soundtracks?
Those of you who can wait for the physical release of the album will be treated to some nifty special features, including a "special collector's booklet featuring the complete order of service, the readings, vows, hymns and blessings, and all the music from the ceremony."
Here's what the album's producer Anna Barry had to say about the release:
“The wedding means so much to millions of people all over the world. We have to capture every note and every nuance perfectly and have the recording ready within minutes of the end of the ceremony.”
No track list as of yet, but confirmed musicians for the wedding album include the Abbey's choir, the Chapel Royal Choir, the London Chamber Orchestra, and the Fanfare Team from the Central Band of the Royal Air Force.
We've seriously never heard of anything like this before! Might need to process this one for a bit. LOLz.
Will U order an audio recording of the royal wedding on iTunes? How about the CD?
