Paul McCartney wants to make the Destiny theme song a popular single

Destiny musicPaul McCartney wants to make the Destiny theme song a popular single photo



It's been known that Paul McCartney's been involved with the music of Destiny since the reveal of the game in 2013, although it's been said that he's been working on it since 2010. His fans probably aren't necessarily used to needing access to videogame consoles to hear the revered musician's compositions. If a recent report is any indication, they won't need to.

In a New York Times article spotlighting McCartney's efforts to create a dynamic score for an interactive experience, it's noted that he plans to release the Destiny theme song as a single soon after the game comes out on September 9. While the song is said to be about hope, samples of it haven't surfaced to offer a clue as to what it'll sound like.

It's been known that McCartney was working on the music to Destiny with studio composer Marty O'Donnell before O'Donnell's contract with Bungie was terminated earlier this year. The two met at Abbey Road Studios in London several times to collaborate on the soundtrack, which included recording with a 120-piece ensemble.

It remains to be seen how the single will take off, and what kind of exposure it might possibly give Destiny. Players are often introduced to popular music through games, but it'll be a bit of a change of course if music fans can learn about games through what's popular on the charts.

Badass with cerebral palsy beats Destiny's Crota with his feet

This awesome guy uses his feet to beat Destiny's Crota raid, on top of living with cerebral palsy. I'm pretty sure that makes him a badass. If you feel otherwise, come fight me.  The ending is the cutest thing ever when they finish the raid and give each other high fives; made me a little teary-eyed.  Boy with Cerebral Palsy defeats crota with feet! [reddit]more

Samuel L. Jackson is the real Ghost we deserve

Despite all evidence to the contrary, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege isn't just about destroying track homes until a hostage is either saved or killed. It's much more tactical than that. Sometimes you have to go on the ...more

Review: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: Claptastic Voyage

With Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, I like and dislike different parts of it in almost equal measure. The combat is exciting and the characters are likable. On the other hand, the environments are a little dull and it suff...more
