Adele arrives at Abbey Road Studios to record James Bond movie theme song “Skyfall”
There were rumors that Adele recorded a James Bond theme song dating back to last year, but now The Sun offers one of the strongest evidence to date that the singer could contribute to the music for the last film. from 007, “Skyfall”.
The website reports that earlier this month, Adele visited the historic Abbey Road Studios, where music director Thomas Newman composed the score for the spy film starring Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench and Ralph Fiennes. Adele reportedly worked with Paul Epworth, who produced “Rolling in the Deep”.
Last year, Adele hinted at talk show host Jonathan Ross that she would be heading into the studio to record just one song. She revealed, “Well, that’s actually a theme. Wow, it really does give it something.” It seems to us that a couple Adele and Bond is anything but a done deal!
How would Adele fare as a Bond singer? While many of Bond’s most memorable themes have been recorded by rock bands, female pop artists have also produced their fair share, including Madonna’s “Die Another Day”, Sheryl Crow’s “Tomorrow Never Dies” and the Alicia Keys-Jack White duo ‘Another Way to Die.’
Given that Adele won’t be releasing the sequel to her record-breaking album “21” anytime soon, her possible Bond theme might be the only new music we’ve gotten from her in a long, long time. Fingers crossed!
