Adele to sing new Bond theme tune

Thursday September 27, 2012

Superstar Adele has been confirmed as the vocalist for the latest James Bond theme tune.

The Someone Like You artist will be singing the theme tune for the new James Bond film, Skyfall.

In tune with the title, the song is rumoured to be call Let The Sky Fall.

Described as a dramatic ballad, the rich and ominous tone of the song is said to be carried by the talented star's vocals.

A few lyrical snippets of the theme have been released, such as the introductory passage: "This is the end/Hold your breath and count to ten/Feel the Earth move and then/Hear my heart burst again."

The singer's voice also draws parallels with that of singer Dame Shirley Bassey. The theme tunes for Diamonds Are Forever and Goldfinger have gone down as the greatest songs in Bond history. 

Skyfall will be released on October 26.
