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.
