Paul McCartney composing music for unannounced game

Paul McCartney is writing music for an unannounced video game, according to an interview with German music publication Zeit Online, stating it will be the first time “young people” hear his music in game – barring his work with the Beatles and Wings in the Rock Band franchise.

“Actually, I’m currently working on music for a computer game,” he said. “I was asked, and found it exciting. Moreover, this is a fascinating market. A new computer game is selling these days so much better than a new CD. And you reach a different audience.

“Probably, in this way, [for] many young people [this is] the first time my music will be heard in a video game.”

Sir Paul said that “perhaps” it will inspire them the way Jazz was an inspiration for him.

No word exactly what the game is he is composing for, but now that the news is out, we should probably here something before too long.
