The studio version of Adele’s theme song for the latest James Bond movie, Skyfall, was released today, along with a lyric video.
“I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall,” says Adele, who read the film’s script before penning the track’s lyrics with producer Paul Epworth. “There’s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song.
A 77-piece orchestra back Adele’s vocals on “Skyfall,” which she recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London.
Fans can download the song on iTunes, or listen to it on Adele.TV, where “Skyfall” premiered to coincide with the James Bond franchise’s 50th anniversary.
