The long-awaited Adele theme song for Skyfall is here:
We like it, but then again, we like Adele. Share your thoughts in the comments.
MI6 has been contacted by insiders with a first look at the Adele “Let The Sky Fall” cover art. The news is not expected to break until Monday, but here it is!
Latino Review point out that they too can make the proposed cover in 10 minutes and thus speculate it is fan art. Make of this what you will…
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.”
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.’
The long-running rumor that UK singer Adele will be singing the title theme for Skyfall has been reengaged by The Sun.
According to the press, Adele made a “secret” visit to Abbey Road studios, where the soundtrack for Skyfall is being recorded.
The singer that performed “You Know My Name” – the theme Daniel Craig’s Casino Royale - told the media recently that English singer Adele would be perfect for a Bond theme.
“She’s phenomenal and it’s nice, in a day and age where so many vocals are fixed by computers, that the biggest album of last year was somebody who sings for real. I would hate to see music become more mechanistic and less human, so her success has been great.”
Adele has been in and out of the media with rumours that she submitted a track to the Bond producers.
The press speculation is back after a lull in the proceedings. Adele was first tipped for the Skyfall theme long before we knew the 23rd James Bond film as Skyfall.
Now in an interview with French Radio the singer says her next album is a year off, but a single will be released later in the year – perfect timing for the Bond theme, some may say.
Reporting from the premiere of George Cloony’s new film, The Ides of March, Showbiz 411 claims Craig is gearing up for the new James Bond film and will start work with director Sam Mendes next week. It was revealed recently that Mendes had blocked in a two week rehearsal period for Bond 23.
Craig told the reporter he starts work on 007 next week, and his schedule includes “a lot of working out”.
Showbiz quizzed Craig on the Adele theme song rumors that have been circulating, he claimed no knowledge of a deal between the film’s producers and the recording artist, but did not deny that the Brit singer was recording a demo.
The 23 year old, London-born singer/songwriter Adele appeared on TV in the UK this week, hinting that she may be involved in James Bond 23.
When asked by presenter Jonathan Ross what she was working on, Adele reported she was heading back into the studio to record a demo theme:
‘Well, this is actually a theme, what I’ve got to do. Wow, that’s really giving something away.’
According to reports Ross proceeded to hum the 007 theme, and the singer blushed and covered her mouth.
