Michael McGlynn approached and said, ‘Listen, we’re writing music for a remake of a PlayStation game’ – and he did a lot. I have written a lot for different sports which are very popular but I am not a player myself.
Anyway, he said, ‘Look, this is an Irish language piece they’re looking for’. So I was really involved in writing songs in Irish, and his daughter sang on the track and his wife did some choir arrangements like Michael did. And he also worked with me on the linguistic side of things, so it was almost like a family effort.
For a long time I haven’t been allowed to – you don’t know who you’re writing for, it’s all kind of a mystery because they don’t want to throw it out. So it will actually be announced at Christmas – the name of the game. I’ve heard about it and confirm it’s a great game, which is great! It’s going to be an Irish language piece in the game, which is fantastic.”
