Adele confirms Bond theme

Adele has been chatting about writing and recording the new Bond theme, for ‘Skyfall’, after posting a photo of the sheet music of the track she has penned with frequent collaborator Paul Epworth (well, its title page).
Possibly realising that anyone can type some names on a piece of paper and post it to the internet, the singer return to the net a little later to write about her Bond theme experience, saying: “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. But I fell in love with the script and Paul had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no brainer to do it in the end. It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I’ve never done, which made it exciting. When we recorded the strings it was one of the proudest moments of my life. 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!”
The song will be premiered at seven minutes past midnight on Friday. Because seven minutes past midnight is… oh never mind. A sneaky preview appeared on a fan site last night, but seems to have gone now.
