Adele’s Skyfall single gets an official release date

Available from 5 October 2012

Since it was confirmed that Adele would be singing the theme song for James Bond’s latest movie outing Skyfall, we’ve been desperate to hear a snippet of it.

We won’t have to wait much longer as the official release date of the single has been announced on Adele’s Facebook page, shortly after she tweeted an image of herself in the recording studio.

In a neat move, the single will be available in the UK from 0.07hrs BST (see what they did there?) on Friday 5 October. At least we know what we’ll be listening to at 0.08.

The cover art for the single (above) basically blends Adele’s face into the first Skyfall poster, and would seem to confirm that the song is also called Skyfall.

Skyfall, the 23rd official film in the James Bond series opens in the UK on 26 October 2012.

Do you think Adele’s Bond song will be up there with the series’ best? Have your say below!

      I have a feeling this is going to be the best Bond theme we've had since Tina Turner's GoldenEye. Adele has the right voice for a 007 theme. Cannot wait to hear this

      This is a horrible song!!! Don't think they could've picked a worse artist for the job. Will definetly be off to the concessions stand while that is droning on in screen... think my ears may bleed if I listen to it in IMAX!

      Good luck to her, she has a great voice and I'm sure the song will be no worse than Madonna's awful effort.
