Adele has long been rumoured as the official voice of new Bond anthem, Skyfall, but confirmation only arrived a couple of weeks ago. And now, we can finally hear the end product…

In addition to the new song, there is also a new Skyfall videoblog to check out, focusing on the film’s various locations, all of which look suitably spectacular.

And there's even a brand new clip, for good measure!
Directed by Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench and Ralph Fiennes, Skyfall opens in the UK on 26 October 2012.
