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.’
