Paul McCartney on Monday released a new song, “Hope for the Future,” and an accompanying video. The song is a sprawling, inspirational anthem recorded with a 120-piece orchestra as a theme song for the online first-person-shooter game “Destiny.” The Star’s music critic, Timothy Finn, writes that It’s not the worst song McCartney has ever written, but it’s not likely to jump on anyone’s list of top 20 McCartney songs, either.
