Paul McCartney has shared his theme tune for the computer game ‘Destiny’.

The former Beatle worked on the score for the game and you can now listen to ‘Hope For The Future’ by clicking above. The first-person shooter is available for Playstation and Xbox now and saw McCartney working with a 120 piece orchestra at London’s Abbey Road Studios on the theme, which is set to be released as a single. The orchestra was conducted by Beatles producer George Martin’s son Giles and produced by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent.

The score has come together over the past four years, with McCartney joining forces with the games company Bungie’s in-house composer Marty O’Donnell and Mike Salvatori.

In July McCartney resumed his Out There tour, after taking almost two months off following a virus. The former Beatle played Times Union Centre in Albany, New York, telling the crowd “It’s great to be back,” and opening his three-hour long set with ‘Eight Days A Week’. In May, McCartney was taken ill and hospitalised in Tokyo, Japan. He subsequently postponed a series of shows in Lubbock, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and Louisville on his ‘Out There’ tour, which have been rearranged for October.
