A chance to compose tracks for a new videogame shows that money is indeed still what Paul McCartney wants.

Well into his post-Beatles career, critics and purists have viewed Paul McCartney with varying degrees of suspicion for his particular ability to cash in his musical talent. According to a recent story in Express, he’s once again heading into uncharted territory to give his music a wider audience:

The Beatles legend admits he jumped at the chance to compose tracks for the project as he’s convinced computer games now sell more quickly than traditional albums.

He says, “It’s a fascinating market. A new computer game sells so much better than a new CD these days. Young people will hear my music for the first time in a game.”

So maybe money can’t buy you love. But can you get it from gamers instead?
