Sir Paul McCartney has entered the world of music for the computer game industry, scoring the soundtrack to Destiny, which is the latest release from the makers of Halo.
The game came out in September and Macca was commissioned to submit ideas for a soundtrack and create a theme song.
The track, Hope For The Future, will get a release later this year, with more details to be announced in the coming weeks.
It was produced by Giles Martin, who he worked with on his latest studio album, New. Giles is the son of Sir George Martin, who produced most of the Beatles records.
I was lucky enough to be sat in a studio at 4 o clock yesterday waiting for Sir Paul to call! Just your average wednesday ya know. CASUAL!
Here he is chatting to me all about the tune and whether kicking back for a game of Destiny or any computer game for that matter could be a regular thing....
Had a blast DJing at the Oakley after-party following the premiere of their new film Snowboarding For Me at the Curzon Mayfair.
Their new movie features an all-star line up of snowboarding pioneers Terje Håkonsen, Eero Ettala and JP Walker, Olympians Shaun White, Mark McMorris and Ståle Sandbech, and backcountry riders Jake Blauvelt and Nicolas Müller, and more.
Here's a snap of me and my buddy Michea in the booth at Whisky Mist.
Now get me to the mountains!
Savages and Japan via London outfit Bo Ningen are about to release a unique collaborative album called 'Words to the Blind'.
Out on Nov 17th the record consists of one long track described as a “simultaneous sonic poem”.
The two bands have performed collaboratively before, Jehnny Beth of Savages first met Bo Ningen five years ago when she performed at British Sea Power’s festival. Since she has appeared on their album ‘III’ and together they have already performed this project, back at the Red Gallery in London in May last year.
On November 18th there will be a special Q&A session with both bands and musician, writer and music commentator John Robb at Rough Trade East making sense of the project and discussing the concept, creation and performance of the piece.
Both bands will perform it again at the Oval Space in London on November 19th in what one could describe as a ferocious battle of improvisation, noise and poetry. It's always refreshing to see a band doing something purely for artist reasons.
Jehnny Beth sees this project evolving with possibilities to introduce different instruments or maybe even different bands and here she is chatting to me for BBC 6 Music News about how the project… I am still unsure when I rang her if she said she was in the bar, or the bath... I'm presuming it wasn't the latter...
