Adele confirms Bond Theme – ‘Skyfall’ debuts this Thursday

October 2nd, 2012 by Marc Comments

Well we told you all on Sunday that Adele was probably the voice behind the new James Bond theme here and it looks like we were right…

The theme is called Skyfall and it is set to debut online on here official site here on Thursday at  0:07 BST/LONDON time on October 5th or 7:07pm EST October 4th, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the theatrical release of the very first big screen Bond, Dr. No.

Adele said: “I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for ‘Skyfall,'” says the musical artist.

“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 features an accompaniment of a 77-piece orchestra and we at FTN are really  looking forward to hearing this…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
