His “Destiny”? Paul McCartney Facebooks his new venture- writing for Bungie
“I love to hear a choir. I love the humanity to see the faces of real people devoting themselves to a piece of music. I like the teamwork. It makes me feel optimistic about the human race when I see them cooperating like that.”
Sir Paul, formerly of The Beatles, is seeing notes with frags dancing in his head. Top secret projects have been in the works and speculation is Sir Paul is working on “Destiny,” a new title due to be released in 2013. Working on massively multiplayer online action shooters will be a new venture for McCartney who is collaborating with the best of the best, a Beatle of video games in his own right- Bungie’s Marty O’Donnell. What a dream time and yes, it smacks of Destiny. Not much has been released about the new title, but it has a lot going for it already.
Mr. McCartney may strike another hit like his, “Yesterday” which is the most covered song in history- over 2,200 artists have sung it! McCartney has been described by Guinness World Records as the “most successful composer and recording artist of all time”, and he has co-written over 32 number on hits on the Billboard charts. Amazing!
The Seattle Times had an interesting bit about the revolutionary Knight:
McCartney disclosed on his Facebook page that he’s working with Bungie’s Marty O’Donnell, who is probably the video-game world’s equivalent of McCartney. O’Donnell is at left in this photo that McCartney shared over the weekend. It was taken at Abbey Road Studios in May.
Bungie spokesman Eric Osborne said the relationship “developed very serendipitously.”
“Paul heard Marty’s work, and reached out to him,” Osborne said via email. “After a few collaborative writing sesions, it was clear that Paul was going to bring something remarkable to the project.”
The Seattle Times went on to add some song titles which were too good not to share:
“Activision is publishing the game, which may be the anchor tenant on the next Xbox console.
O’Donnell’s soundtracks for the “Halo” franchise have been best-sellers on their own, so imagine what the pairing with McCartney could produce.
Here’s my top 10 list of songs I’d like to see on the “Destiny” soundtrack:”
10: “I Want to Frag your Hand”
9: “Live and Let Die”
7: “A Slay in the Life”
6: “In My Extra Life”
5: “Hey Space Dude”
4: “Let It Bleed”
3: “Silly Gun Songs”
2: “Clan on the Run”
1: “Yellow Suborbital Marine”
…and its only a matter of time….
