Win the chance to join Paul discussing 'Hope For The Future' with Lily Cole
Paul McCartney to discuss writing his new song 'Hope For The Future' for the game 'Destiny' at intimate event with Lily Cole and musicians from her Impossible.com website
Fans will be aware that Paul and entrepreneur / model / actress Lily Cole have a fun history of working together. Lily appeared in Paul's 'Queenie Eye' video (pictured above) and earlier in the year sent us a photo of a Korean fan she witnessed busking Paul's songs at a piano in Kings Cross station, London.
The two are teaming up once more to offer musicians the chance to attend an intimate songwriting class at a secret location in London where Paul will discuss the writing of his new song 'Hope For The Future', written for the biggest gaming event of the year; the shared world video game 'Destiny'.
Always one to push himself into breaking new ground, 'Hope For The Future' is Paul's first venture into writing for a computer game.
Lily, like Paul, is a fan of using her influence to benefit others and in 2013 launched a new global community website named Impossible allowing users to help each other by sharing their time, skills and objects. The community is based on a gift economy in that everything is always given or loaned for free.
Paul thought Lily's Impossible website was the perfect platform for him to talk about writing 'Hope For The Future', a song that includes the line, "We'll be together sharing the load, watching in wonder as our lives unfold".
The intimate and invitation-only discussion will take place on the morning of Wednesday 19th November at a secret location in London, and Paul and Lily would like to invite along a small group of musicians to join them. At the event Paul will give the musicians a unique opportunity to ask him to share his thoughts and ideas about songwriting.
HOW TO GAIN ENTRANCE TO THE EVENT:
To be in with a chance of attending the event, fans should head over to Impossible.com where you will need to register and create a new 'wish' saying what musical instruments you play along with the hashtag #iamamusician
Please note: The successful musicians will be contacted directly by Impossible and will be required to bring along photo ID to the talk for proof of identity.
Paul's new single 'Hope For The Future' will be released in the coming weeks. Please keep checking back to PaulMcCartney.com for full details.
