Adele has premiered her latest recording ‘Skyfall,’ and we have it here for you to listen to in full!
This is the theme song to the upcoming James Bond 007 adventure of the same name, and is also now available on iTunes.
Today 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.
Adele enlisted Paul Epworth to co-write and produce the theme song to Skyfall, after reading the script of the film.
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.
It embodies everything we love about the Bond soundtracks, lush orchestral sounds, crooning vocals, and just awesomeness all round!
Check out the track below! As if we didn’t already know Adele was musically amazing, this song has cemented her place in the film world as well!
