Hope For The Future (Thrash)

Written by Paul McCartney

Studio version




Paul’s new song ‘Hope For The Future’ will be globally released on Monday 8th December. The song was written by Paul 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 […]

Details of the release are confirmed today and the original version of the track from the ‘Destiny’ credits will be made digitally available alongside four special mixes. […]

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.”
