Former Beatle, frontman of Wings, and music icon Sir Paul McCartney stated in an interview that he is currently working on music for a videogame (and no, it’s not “The Beatles: Rock Band 2″ in case you’re wondering). In an interview with Die Zeit (by the way, “Google Translate” will be your friend for this article), McCartney was asked by the interviewer if he would ever write music for a videogame. His response was that he already is, and that he finds the idea “exciting,” and the games market “fascinating;” also noting that videogames are selling more than CDs nowadays.
He recalls when he was a child and music was mostly accessible via his own radio and record collection, but today music is EVERYWHERE. Due to this, Sir McCartney believes that by making new music in videogames, younger people will be hearing his music for the first time through that particular medium.
Maybe (just maybe), I’m amazed….
….as long as it isn’t like Journey’s and Aerosmith’s venture into videogames. Ugh!
