Paul McCartney

Sir Paul is expected to release the theme song for Bungie’s highly anticipated FPS game soon after it launches

The New york Times report the ex-Beatle has been collaborating with the developers to pen the soundtrack for Destiny, with a theme tune written by McCartney expected as a separate single to be released around the same time as the game.

With work going on in secret, not a lot is known about the upcoming track although it has reportedly been recorded at Abbey Road with an 120-piece orchestra. The piece has been directed by Giles Martin with Mark Stent producing, who has previously worked with some big names such as Madonna, Bjork, U2 and Lady Gaga.

Detiny’s theme song is said to be about hope.

Early signs for the game’s popularity and possible follow on sales for the single can been seen following the Destiny beta which drew in around 4.6 million players.

McCartney is said to have been working with composer Marty O'Donnell on the score for Destiny over the last two years. Recording has been taking place at Abbey Road and other studios in Los Angeles and New York.

Sir Paul is no newcomer to the world of gaming with his voice and likeness used on EA’s The Beatles: Rock Band.
