Details emerge about Paul McCartney's Destiny Doings

A couple of days ago, Missoula radio station KMMS interviewed Paul McCartney (who was in town for a concert) - it's a 12-minute interview, and four of those minutes are devoted to Paul's involvement with Destiny! Amazing. It's a great interview in its entirety, but if you're short on time, the Destiny portion begins at about 6:25. One of the most fascinating tidbits buried in his discussion was the fact that McCartney was asked (and agreed) to contribute an entire song!

Eventually they said, "we'd like a song." So that was exciting, you know, I said, "Okay, show me the ballpark, what's the song going to follow, what's going to happen?" So that was great, and we did that.

(Thanks to Xenos, who noticed this interview at ArcadeSushi.) Hot on the heels of that information, Attack of the Fanboy purports to have a bunch of additional info about this song:

  • It will be released after the game launches
  • It was recorded at Abbey Road Studios with a 120-piece orchestra
  • It is focused on the theme of 'Hope'

They don't explain where they got this info... but we'll keep our eyes open and report any new details. 

Update: Looks like AotF found this in the New York Times. Huh.

Marty I'm Amazed

Paul, Marty, and Mike

Edge has posted a fascinating interview with Bungie composer MartyTheElder Martin O'Donnell, and though the focus of the article is Paul McCartney's involvement with Destiny, Marty offers some very interesting insights into the future of the game's soundtrack:

I’m hoping there’s enough substance there that as Destiny develops into the future we can keep adapting that score, arranging and growing new themes that are the germs of ideas right now in the suite. That’s the general plan right now. It allowed us to do a purely musical approach that can be adapted over the next number of years.

'Make a game as good as that.'

Marty O'Donnell shared some fascinating tidbits with the press about the music he and Mike Salvatori created with the help of Paul McCartney last year. Head over to Polygon for a summary of the talk. (For what it's worth, the quote that the title for this newspost came from was not Marty's - it was Mike's.)
