Paul McCartney Hope For The Future EP on 180g 12" Vinyl + Download
New 5-Track EP featuring McCartney's Giles Martin-Produced Video Game Track "Hope For The Future" Alongside 4 Special Mixes
Paul McCartney’s new song "Hope For The Future" was originally written for the record-breaking video game Destiny, and until now has been exclusively available within the game itself. Produced by Giles Martin, "Hope For The Future" is as epic as the game - which sold-through more than $325 million worldwide in its first five days - and is presented here on 180g 12" vinyl alongside four special mixes.
It goes without saying that Paul McCartney has written countless hit singles, orchestral scores, electronica works, film themes, and has consistently changed the world with his music. Listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the 'World’s Most Successful Composer and Recording Artist of All Time', Paul has now added another first to his impressive list: "Hope For The Future" marks the first time that the music legend has ever written specifically for a video game - one poised to become the most successful franchise of its kind.
Talking about the writing process Paul said: “When you’re writing something like 'Hope For The Future', which is custom made, it is like doing a portrait for someone. 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.”
