PAUL McCARTNEY WRITES FOR VIDEO GAME

NEW YORK (AP) -- Paul McCartney felt that after playing a shoot-em-up game, players probably need some positive vibes. McCartney wrote the ballad "Hope For The Future" for the first-person shooter "Destiny." McCartney says he decided to be the "optimistic hope for the future" in the game. That song came easy for him, but they don't always do that. McCartney says he wants to write something in response to the police killings in Ferguson, Missouri, and in New York, but the music is just not coming to him. McCartney says he has not given up on that.
