Paul McCartney released his latest single today and an accompanying music video. “Hope For the Future” was written and recorded for Destiny – one of the biggest video games to be released this year.
“When you’re writing something like ‘Hope For The Future’, which is custom made, it is like doing a portrait for someone,” said McCaratney. “You have to use your imagination and work out what they need, what they’re going to want and then what you want to give them. Then you’ve got to combine those three things into something that you still think maintains integrity. So in the game you’re a Guardian of the last city on Earth so that suggested to me the ‘hope for the future’ idea and I went from there. Then I thought it is not just a game song, this will get played outside the game so it has got to be stand alone too, you can’t have references to aliens or people will think, ‘What’s he talking about?’ So it had to have its own stand alone meaning and integrity.”
“Hope For The Future” is available now on iTunes.
