Speaking about the song 'Skyfall', Adele admitted that she was initially hesitant about recording the theme .
"I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall," Adele said in a statement to announce the song.
"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.
"I'll be backcombing my hair when I'm 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I'm sure!"
Today, October 5, marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No, and thus the James Bond film franchise, and will be celebrated as Global James Bond Day.
