Sam Smith to sing theme song to Spectre..!


We are kicking ourselves that we didn't put money on this as now it seems obvious! Sam Smith has recorded a track called Writing's On The Wall that will be the theme song to SPECTRE, the 24th James Bond adventure.  

The song will debut and be available to purchase and stream on September 25 and was co-written by Sam Smith with fellow GRAMMY® Award winner Jimmy Napes.  It is the first James Bond theme song recorded by a British male solo artist since 1965.  

Smith's debut album In The Lonely Hour launched at No. 1 in the UK and bowed in at No. 2 in the US, and has since earned five No.1 UK singles, four GRAMMY® Awards, three Brit Awards, six MOBO Awards, Q and AMA Awards.


Commenting on the announcement, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the producers of SPECTRE, said, "Sam and Jimmy have written the most inspirational song for Spectre and with Sam's extraordinary vocal performance, 'Writing's On The Wall' will surely be considered one of the greatest Bond songs of all time."

Smith said: "This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honoured to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song. I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations.  I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it."

The 23 previous James Bond theme songs make up some of the most memorable movie music of all time.  The previous Bond theme song, "Skyfall," was performed by Adele, and was honoured with the Academy Award® and Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, the Brit Award for British Single of the Year, and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media. So no pressure Sam, Adele went on to do this..!
