With James Bond ready to kick some ass in a new film Skyfall as early as the end of next month in the U.K., it’s clear that there will be a new theme to go along with the next installment. As the year has gone on, however, only one name has ever remained in contention: Adele. After a monster year on top of the charts thanks to her album 21, the British singer/songswriter has been preparing to become a new mom while also working on upcoming music for her next album. Now, it seems we won’t have to wait too long for a new hit from the accalaimed performer as her vocals will be attached to Skyfall.
Showbiz411 confirms that Adele will be the musician responsible for supplying the theme to Skyfall, marking her first single since “Turning Tables” last November. The track is currently untitled though is expected to share the same title of the upcoming film, while the theme itself has yet to be confirmed at all by Sony Pictures or MGM.
Adele previously teased that she would be involved with the film when she appeared on The Graham Norton Show last winter and teased that she would be performing “a theme”, to which Norton implied the Bond franchise. Since then rumors have swirled regarding the star’s involvement and it only seems like an obvious choice given her immense popularity. Back in May, Adele’s 21 officially hit nine million albums sold and is currently the third best-selling album of the past decade in the United States where it has remained in the Billboard Top 10 for 79 straight weeks.
Directed by Sam Mendes, Skyfall stars Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Javier Bardem, Berenice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Albert Finney and more, with a release set for October 26th in the U.K. and November 9th in the U.S.
