The theme song for the new James Bond movie, sung by Adele, has been leaked on the internet. Adele confirmed on Monday that she had recorded the theme for Skyfall and posted a picture of the song credits on her official Twitter page. However, the track wasn’t due to be unveiled until Friday (October 5th). The same date marks the 50th anniversary of the release of the first James Bond film, Dr No.
Some critics are saying the style of the leaked song reminds them of Dame Shirley Bassey, famous for Bond songs like ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Diamonds Are Forever’. Adele’s confirmation that she had done the song came after months of rumours. The music of has been arranged by Epworth and film composer JAC Redford, whose credits include The Help, The Iron Lady and Wall-E. In a statement to the BBC, Adele said: ‘I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall. There’s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song.’
