Skyfall - Adele (2012 Official Bond Theme)

Adele impressed her fans yet another time after the theme song of the upcoming James Bond flick starring Daniel Craig, “Skyfall”, sung by her, was posted on on Friday. She is now one of the maestros who have provided vocals and music for James Bond films in the past 50 years.

"Skyfall" will be the twenty-third film in the James Bond series, produced by Eon Productions for MGM, Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Entertainment. It features everyone’s favorite Daniel Craig as James Bond and Javier Bardem as Raoul Silva, the film's villain. This would be Craig’s third performance as James Bond. "Skyfall" is directed by Sam Mendes and written by John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

The theme song was written by Adele and Paul Hepworth, who co-wrote her Grammy-winning hit, "Rolling in the Deep". The director of the movie has said that the word "Skyfall" has an "emotional meaning" that will be revealed in the film.

Adele is quite excited about her latest vocals and her fans are even more thrilled to witness yet another masterpiece from her. She posted the cover for the "Skyfall" sheet music on Twitter, crediting the songwriting to herself and Epworth, with arrangements to both Epworth and orchestrator J. A. C. Redford. The song was released online at 0:07am BST on October 5, 2012, a day dubbed "James Bond Day" by the producers, as it marks fifty years to the day of the release of "Dr. No".

In an interview, Adele said, "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," according to a report on

She added, “But I fell in love with the script and [co-songwriter] Paul [Epworth] 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 indeed help in promoting the movie and Adele’s fan following will certainly be eager to watch the movie. "Skyfall" is due to premiere on October 23 and it will be the first James Bond film to be released in IMAX venues.
