Paul McCartney has worked on the score for a new computer game called 'Destiny'.

The former member of The Beatles has also composed the theme tune for the first-person shooter video game for the Playstation and Xbox, working with a 120 piece orchestra at London's Abbey Road Studios on the piece of music. The New York Times reports that the theme tune will be released as a single. The orchestra was conducted by Beatles producer George Martin's son Giles and produced by Mark 'Spike' Stent. The game is released on September 9.

The score has come together over the past four years, with McCartney joining forces with the games company Bungie's in-house composer Marty O'Donnell and Mike Salvatori.

In July McCartney resumed his Out There tour, after taking almost two months off following a virus. The former Beatle played Times Union Centre in Albany, New York on July 5, telling the crowd "It's great to be back," and opening his three-hour long set with 'Eight Days A Week'.

In May, McCartney was taken ill and hospitalised in Tokyo, Japan. He subsequently postponed a series of shows in Lubbock, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and Louisville on his 'Out There' tour, which have now been rearranged for October.
