One of the things that really set the tone for the last James Bond movie was the theme song, ‘Skyfall‘ by Adele. We have learned today that the theme song for the new James Bond Movie, ‘Spectre‘, will be released tomorrow, and it has a lot to live up to to please fans. Lets hope it exceeds expectations. James Bond: Spectre hits Theaters November 6th. Let us know what you think AFTER THE JUMP!
The identity of the performer chosen to sing the new James Bond theme song is almost always as exciting as the buildup to the release of the film itself — even British bookies have placed odds on which pop star would sing the theme for Spectre, with Sam Smith coming in as the heavy favorite. Smith has previously denied his involvement and feigned obliviousness, but it looks like the singer / songwriter has recorded the new Bond theme after all.
There had been rumors that the Spectre theme would be performed by either Ellie Goulding or Radiohead, with Smith himself supporting the Goulding rumor back in July (via The Guardian):
People seem to think I’m doing it but I have no idea what’s going on. I’m being deadly serious. I think I would know by now. I heard Ellie Goulding was going to do it, it’s definitely not me.
But it looks like ol’ Sam Smith was pulling our legs because according to HitFix, not only is the new Bond theme song dropping tomorrow, but Smith himself tweeted this image seemingly confirming his involvement:
