Paul McCartney: Hope for the Future

Paul McCartney has lived through plenty of cultural changes – including, it seems, an era in which video games have soundtracks written by legendary former Beatles. This song for the new game Destiny is a gently ringing paean to human possibility and discovery recorded with a massive orchestra that comes complete with a sci-fi video where he appears as a tomorrow-world hologram: "Hope for the future/It will belong to us/If we believe," he sings. You can't help but think of John Lennon's "Imagine," which was recorded 43 years ago. The world John asked for hasn't arrived yet. Let's hope Paul's gets here before 2057. It sounds jet-packingly awesome.
