Update: You can listen to a sample of the song below.
It has been confirmed that smash success artist Adele will be doing the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film Skyfall, the 23rd film in the Bond series. The artist tweeted a picture of the cover to the song and later tweeted that the song will be released Oct. 5th “0:07hr BST”. Adele recorded the song last month at Abbey Road Studios.
Adele states, “I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for ‘Skyfall.’ There’s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song. But I fell in love with the script and Paul had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no brainer to do it in the end. It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I’ve never done which made it exciting. When we recorded the strings, it was one of the proudest moments of my life. I’ll be back combing my hair when I’m 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I’m sure!”
So, here’s my story: I actually haven’t listened to or heard an Adele song in a while now. Know what? I’m perfectly happy as a result. And I could do very well to never hear her again. Also, this bond movie looks like there might be some rather emotional moments. If Adele’s song makes me want to kill myself before the credits are even over, I’m going to be super pissed. I’m a HUGE Bond fan (I’ve been watching these movies since I was a wee young’un). So Adele, you better crack a damn smile and enjoy this song or I’m going to be upset.
