LISTEN: Adele’s James Bond Theme Tune ‘Skyfall’ Previews Online
Adele’s theme tune for the new James Bond ‘Skyfall’ has surfaced online ahead of its official release.
The singer confirmed yesterday (October 1) that the song will premiere in full at 00.07am (UK time) on Friday, October 5.
The track was written by Adele with producer Paul Epworth and is available to pre-order now on iTunes.
”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.
“It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I’ve never done, which made it exciting,” she explained.
“When we recorded the strings it was one of the proudest moments of my life. “I’ll be backcombing my hair when I’m 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I”m sure!”
‘Skyfall’ will be Adele’s only new material since releasing her award-winning album 21 back in 2011.
The latest James Bond movie Skyfall, featuring Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes and Judi Dench, will hit cinemas from October 26.
