007 fans, prepare for a treat: the full theme tune to the latest Bond film, Skyfall, debuted this morning on singer Adele’s Twitter page at 0:07am.
ADELE RUMOURED TO DESIGN BURBERRY PLUS-SIZE COLLECTION
Adele’s haunting voice and the moody melody have already proved a hit with fans, who have been praising the song on Twitter.
‘OMG OMG OMG BRILLIANT OO7 BOND SONG JUST GOT CHILLS,’ wrote @johnmarc, while @ChristopherFTL gushed: ‘Wow! I’ve been waiting to hear the entire song. Adele, you’ve created an atmospheric masterpiece. Brilliant.’
The 24-year-old singer co-wrote the song with Paul Epworth (producer and co-writer for Adele’s smash hit, Rolling in the Deep), and features Adele’s extraordinary voice backed by a 77-piece orchestra. On 1 October, she posted a pic of the score to her Twitter account.
Adele follows in the footsteps of Sir Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys, Jack White, Dame Shirley Bassey and Duran Duran as the latest singer to pen a Bond theme tune. Despite her considerable success in the music industry, Adele admitted she was daunted by the challenge.
‘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.
‘But I fell in love with the script and Paul had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no-brainer to do it in the end,’ she said in a statement.
Skyfall will premiere in theatres on 26 October, and Adele will be making another debut soon – her first baby with boyfriend Simon Konecki.
