90-Second Preview From Adele‘s SKYFALL Theme Song

90-Second Preview From Adele‘s SKYFALL Theme Song

While Daniel Craig has been James Bond he has had his opening theme songs sung by Jack White and Chris Cornell, and now you can add Adele's name to that select group of artists. Hit the jump to listen to a preview of her new song for Skyfall.

“Adele will premiere Skyfall, the official theme song to the upcoming 007 film of the same name, globally via her official site on Friday October 5th at 0:07 BST/London time (7:07pm EST on October 4th). The track is available for pre-order at iTunes starting today. October 5th marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No and is being celebrated as Global James Bond Day.

After reading the script for the film, Adele enlisted Paul Epworth to co-write and produce the theme song to Skyfall. Adele admits, ‘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!’ Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, Skyfall features the lush accompaniment of a 77-piece orchestra.”

Skyfall, Craig's third outing as James Bond will be released on October 26, 2012. This time Daniel Craig and Judi Dench will be joined by Javier Bardem, Berenice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCroy, Albert Finney, and Ralph Fiennes.

I'm liking the orchestration. It's only a clip but I think this could be a really solid Bond song.

I LOve The Gif Up Top... Like A Boss.....

Grat song. Very Bondesque!
But then again, it's the same sound, tone and melodie than Casino Royal, GoldenEye and many other Bond songs it seems...
RGINLA - 10/1/2012, 12:23 PM
Only women should sing Bond theme songs, IMHO... apologies to Sir Paul.

Not bad, for a fatty HAHAHA!!!

^ class act.
jimoakley666 - 10/1/2012, 12:39 PM
That's quite a sexy Bond theme. Specially when the Bong suit kicks in.

Nomis1800: Very mature.

I like it.

6MB animated GIF and a removed YouTube link = FAIL!

AC1 - 10/1/2012, 1:15 PM
Wow. I think that may be my favourite Bond theme. I really like how they subtly incorporated the series theme in the background.
AC1 - 10/1/2012, 1:17 PM
By the way, thanks for the link lokibane2012! :)
Ceejay - 10/1/2012, 1:39 PM
That sounds right on the money, every penny of it!
imnotahero - 10/1/2012, 1:52 PM
Much better than the Jack White and Alicia Keys nightmare.
amxt - 10/1/2012, 2:30 PM
Yes, thank you @lokibane2012

I liked the QoS one but i think it just looked bad compared to the awesome one for CR
loshanagan - 10/1/2012, 3:39 PM
Can credit songs be nominated for best original song, or does it have to be in-film?
bcom77 - 10/1/2012, 4:03 PM
I don't know why but I got chills down my spine listening to that! It already sounds like a classic Bond theme song. I actually liked Chris Cornell's theme for Casino Royale but this, this sounds like a Bond song should.
dreddhead123 - 10/1/2012, 5:41 PM
Here is a fair bit of the song.


Sounds good although Adele's voice sounds a bit squeaky?

Bryanferryfan - 10/1/2012, 6:18 PM
Duran Duran should have had a second crack at it.
TheBatman3000 - 10/1/2012, 7:17 PM
its okay....i like "you know my name" way better..and even the second one..this..idk..maybe i have to see the movie to pass my final judgment on it
rondz123 - 10/1/2012, 8:11 PM

Jennifer Hudson should have been in this with her would have been EPIC!!!!!!
EarOne - 10/2/2012, 12:25 AM
couldn't listen to the music prev.. but i'm diggin' the movie clip. i hope it's better if not as great as casino royale.
number10 - 10/2/2012, 4:43 AM
down already! bastard!!
number10 - 10/2/2012, 4:45 AM
does anyone have a link?
SWelch - 10/2/2012, 8:17 AM
@Nomis1800 So what are you still in grade school? What is important is her talent not how she looks. And I also do believe the reason for her gaining weight recently is she is pregnant.

So keep your insults to yourself will you.
gingerwarrior - 10/2/2012, 10:11 AM

Theres a 30 second clip on there.
YoungThanos - 10/2/2012, 2:25 PM
Sound alright.

"Snake Eater" is way better!
