Paul McCartney is working on new music with the creators of the popular video game Halo. McCartney made the announcement on his Twitter page over the weekend, posting, "I'm really excited to be working on writing music with Bungie, the studio that made Halo," along with a photo of him working on the project.

Though McCartney is working with Bungie, it doesn't seem his new music will appear in the upcoming Halo 4, as the latest iteration is being developed by 343 Studios. This isn't the first time McCartney has entered the video game world: his likeness was featured in The Beatles: Rock Band in 2009.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
