Much has been made of Adele‘s classic, soulful, 60’s-style vocals and their matching fashions. Now her sound and look are exactly where they belong — on the arm (well, okay, soundtrack) of a certain Bond…James Bond.
Sony has officially confirmed that the singer recorded the theme song for the upcoming flick, “Skyfall”. The tune, which shares the film’s name, will make its official debut on Oct. 5 at the oh-so-clever hour of 0:07 a.m. London time on a date that also happens to be the 50th anniversary of the Bond franchise.
But if you simply can’t wait ’til Friday, fret not–the song has received some early spins (and a marketing push) thanks to the following 90 second teaser leak:
Pretty much pitch-perfect if you ask us, but the singer was wary of the pressures involved in creating an iconic Bond song.
“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,” the singer tells E!. But then she fell in love with the script, and now she’s singing an altogether different tune about her experience, saying: “When we recorded the strings, it was one of the proudest moments of my life. I’ll be backcombing my hair when I’m 60, telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day, I’m sure!”
So what do you think, readers? Is leaking the clip a good pre-release PR move, or do you need to hear the whole thing at the theater, popcorn in hand, to pass judgement?
