About

For Promotional Use Only.

Contains the prototype soundtrack and unreleased tracks for Bungie’s Destiny. Audio director Martin O’Donnell personally produced and gave away “nearly 100” copies before disputes with Bungie resulted in his departure from the company and the album release being shelved.

From Wikipedia:

Music of the Spheres is an eight-part musical companion piece to Destiny, composed by Marty O’Donnell together with Michael Salvatori and Paul McCartney. Parts of the music were used to accompany a Destiny trailer at E3 2013, and in the official soundtrack. But following O’Donnell’s dismissal from and subsequent legal dispute with Bungie, Music of the Spheres remained unreleased. It was leaked to the Internet by unknown persons in December 2017. Bungie officially released the album on June 1, 2018.

From Music Of The Spheres: co-written by Paul McCartney | Steve Hoffman Music Forums:

In case anyone is curious, McCartney worked on tracks 1, 4, 5, 7, and 8 of Music of the Spheres. Everywhere else McCartney is credited on the vinyl is because they used a melody he wrote (which they actually still do in Destiny 2, how cool is that?).

I don’t know what all he did for each track, but I do generally know what he did for Track 01, “The Path.” In the opening, there’s a Horn melody that’s lifted from something McCartney did. This Horn melody itself is edited from a piano melody later in the piece. The piano version is the original version of this melody. Before Paul started working on Music of the Spheres, he had told Martin O’Donnell that if he was going to collaborate with anyone it would be Bob Dylan. So it originally worked in a way to where Paul wrote his own pieces for the game and sent them to O’Donnell and Salvatori, who’d edit them to be used in the game. That piano melody was a whole piece that Paul had been working on. Then one day while Paul was working with Marty, Paul said “what about that Music of the Spheres thing, what if we put some of this into some of that?” and Paul said that he did want to collaborate with Marty because “I love it when we take my music and your music and we put it together and it becomes our music.” So Paul started working directly on Music of the Spheres after that.

From user AtlyxMusic

I’d rather have it just be that people listen to the whole they can sort of make up their own minds about what they think is Paul and what is Mike and what is me, and if they figure it out I’ll tell give them a prize but I don’t think they will.
