Adele to provide theme tune for Skyfall

Single will be called, er, Skyfall

James Bond returns to UK cinemas next month in Skyfall, Sam Mendes’ first crack at directing 007, and now we know who will be crooning over the opening credits, with Adele confirmed as having recorded an official theme song.

The multi-award-winning star had long been rumoured to be taking on the prestigious accolade, and had been spotted at an MGM recording studio a couple of weeks ago. Those rumours can now be confirmed as fact, with the singer having penned the imaginatively named Skyfall.

The single will be the first release from the star since her much-feted 21 album, and can surely only be an improvement on Jack White and Alicia Keys’ poorly received Another Way To Die, the theme tune to Quantum Of Solace.

Adele will likely prove a popular choice, given her success on both sides of the Atlantic, and she certainly boasts the kind of heavyweight, soulful voice usually required to do 007 justice.

Co-starring Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw, Skyfall will open in the UK on 26 October 2012.
 

Is Adele a good choice to sing the theme tune? Tell us, below!

      This is seriously still a rumour. The Sun just didn't have anything interesting to write about, so they kicked this rumour up a notch. Now, everybody is taking this seriously. Just wait for Adele, EON Productions or MGM studios to officially announce it...

      I'd like to see Aerosmith do a James Bond theme, think they'd nail it.

      She will be singing her hit song, "Eggrolling in the deep." I hear Skyfall is bringing extra support beams for the stage because her shadow weighs 150lbs. She requested her headliner be Cake, but was disappointed when the band showed up.

      For fuqs sake, how is Coldplays wimpy middle-class-handjob pleasef**koffanddieinanavalancheoffairtradebrocollisomewhereingodforsakenchelsea anthems going to complement Bonds all action hero? Anyway, fat jokes from someone who calls himself Mcburger? Sorry I can't hearing over the pot and kettle arguing. You know who should do it? Dame Shirley Bassey.

      I like the choice Adele has a great voice. I still enjoy listening to Chris Cornell's bond theme for Casino Royale.

      Hell Yes! Love the choice of Adele. Think she will end up in the ranks of Shirley Bassey. Give the girl a chance and stop cracking wise about her weight. At least she is healthy and alive which is more than we can say about Amy Winehouse who was also scheduled to record for this moving but she couldn't manage to stand up in front of the microphone without passing out. Don't get me wrong.........loved, loved, loved Amy and love, love, love Joss Stone. I'm suspecting Adele will WOW us!
