Adele records James Bond ‘Skyfall’ theme


The queen of British pop will join the nation's top spy for the release of new James Bond film 'Skyfall', as Grammy-award winner Adele confirmed she has recorded the theme track.

"There's a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song", the singer is quoted as saying on the official James Bond website.

"But I fell in love with the script. It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I've never done, which made it exciting."

"I'll be back combing my hair when I'm 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day, I'm sure!"

Rumours were confirmed when Adele posted a picture of the sheet music to her Twitter feed.

The film will be released in the UK on October 26th.
