Paul McCartney is hoping to reach a new generation of fans by writing music for a video game.
The Beatles legend tells German newspaper Die Zeit that he jumped at the chance to compose tracks for the project. He says, “It’s a fascinating market. A new computer game sells so much better than a new CD these days. Young people will hear my music for the first time in a game.”
It’s not McCartney’s first foray into the world of gaming. He and his former band mate Ringo Starr came together to launch “The Beatles: Rock Band” game in 2010.
