Sir Paul McCartney will release the theme song for Destiny as a single, following the game’s release on September 9th.
The former Beatle has collaborated with composer Marty O'Donnell to create Destiny's score. According to a report by the New York Times article, the theme song was recorded at Abbey Road with a 120-piece ensemble. It was directed by Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George, and produced by Mark Stent, who has previously worked with Bjork, Lady Gaga and U2. The theme is said to be about “hope”.
Marty O'Donnell's parted company with Bungie in April. It was an acrimonious split. O’Donnell sued the company for unpaid wages, eventually settling on a $95,000 legal settlement. Sir Paul McCartney, meanwhile, has previously appeared in The Beatles: Rock Band.
