Sam Smith’s Bond theme finally released

The new Bond theme is finally revealed to the world.

Sam Smith’s much anticipated theme song to the brand new James Bond film Spectre is finally released. Titled ‘Writing’s On The Wall’, the song – released by Capitol Records – has debuted today and you can get a sneak peak of it below.

Spectre will be released in the UK on October 26 and in the US on November 6. Tickets to Spectre are also now available to pre-purchase.

Multi-platinum selling artist Sam Smith has co-written the title song, ‘Writing’s On The Wall, 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 honored 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.

Check out the song reveal at BBC Radio One’s Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw.
