Adele premieres new James Bond theme song Skyfall



Adele has premiered “Skyfall,” the theme song for the forthcoming James Bond film of the same name.

Written by Adele and producer Paul Epworth, the track and was released on October 5 (UK Time) to coincide with Global Bond Day, marking the 50th anniversary of the first Bond film, 1962’s “Dr No” starring Sean Connery.

"There's a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song," said Adele. "But I fell in love with the script and [producer] Paul [Epworth] had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no brainer to do it in the end. It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I've never done which made it exciting. When we recorded the strings, it was one of the proudest moments of my life. I'll be back combing my hair when I'm 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I'm sure!"

Following official premiere screenings, “Skyfall” will hit UK cinemas on October 26 and US theaters on November 9.
