New “Skyfall” song by Adele, lyrics leaked

According to the writer Roger Friedman over at Showbiz411, he has had an exclusive listen to part of Adele’s new title track for James Bond’s 23rd adventure: Skyfall.

Thanks to record industry sources, I got to hear a bit of the song. Readers of this column know we already broke the story of Adele singing the “Skyfall” theme a couple of times.

Part of the chorus of the song goes: “Let the sky fall/Let it crumble/We will stand tall/And face it all/together.”

The introductory lines, which follow a piano solo, are: “This is the end/Hold your breath and count to ten/Feel the Earth move and then/Hear my heart burst again.”

This is a long running rumour that nobody official enough has decided to confirm or deny, and so journalists and bloggers are now running with the story. We’re awaiting official word, but if true, these lyrics might just be the one sending tingles down the spines of Bond fans in November (or October for the lucky English!).

Band Muse suggest that their song Supremacy has the perfect Bond sound

Some are reporting that the band Muse missed out on their chance to record a Bond theme with Skyfall, although what evidence they have to support the claim that they were ever in the running, we don’t know. However, they are comparing their new song, “Supremacy” to a Bond theme, with drummer Dom Howard saying:

‘It’s got a little whisper to the Bond vibe, it all goes a bit crazy Live And Let Die in the middle.

‘My view is they should use it for the next James Bond film, but I don’t know what’s going on with that. I heard Adele was doing it.’
