Sam Smith hints he recorded the theme song for new ‘James Bond’ movie, ‘Spectre’

Did Sam Smith just drop a massive hint at him doing Spectre soundtrack?.

On Monday, Smith posted an uncaptioned photo on Instagram of him wearing a ring featuring the tentacled logo of 007’s new nemesis — suggesting he recorded the opening score for the upcoming blockbuster, “Spectre.” If it does turn out to be Smith, he would join an illustrious group of pop stars to sing Bond’s praises. In many ways, honey-voiced chanteur Sam Smith is the male answer to Adele — which is why fans have been speculating for months that he could be the voice behind the next James Bond theme song. Tom Jones sang and wrote the theme for “Thunderball” in 1965, and Paul McCartney had a hit with “Live and Let Die” for the 1973 movie of the same name. That theory got dealt a blow in July, though, when the soulful Grammy winner told UK radio station Capital FM that he was “definitely not” performing the track — and suggested that Ellie Goulding had gotten the gig instead. Keen 007 fans will have spotted that, although Smith did not include a caption or any further information with the image, the ring in question is decorated with the symbol for famous evil Bond organisation SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion).

The 23-year-old star shared an image of the ring on his finger, featuring the symbol of an octopus with blade-like tentacles, which is associated with the fictional organisation in the 007 universe. The singer’s clue comes days after he denied he would be joining the ranks of Adele, Tina Turner, Madonna and Shirley Bassey by recording a Bond theme. “I’ve still got loads to do, I’ve got an Australia tour, but I kind of finish in December which is great, it gives me a chance to be in London, be in my home and go out with my friends.” Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, Paloma Faith and Lana Del Rey have also been linked to the Spectre theme song, although Sheeran claimed he was “too wet” for the gig.

Daniel Craig will reprise his role as the Secret Service agent, alongside Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes and Rory Kinnear, and newcomers Andrew Scott, Christoph Waltz, Dave Bautista as well as Bond girls Monica Bellucci, Lea Seydoux and Stephanie Sigman. Bono has confirmed that U2 will play in Ireland at the end of November after the band found a way to reformat their current tour to suit an Irish venue.

The Luther actor has repeatedly been tipped to succeed Daniel Craig as 007, but Horowitz, who has written latest Bond novel Trigger Mortis, commissioned by the estate of Bond’s creator Ian Fleming, insisted that he is not well-suited to the part. “For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part,” Horowitz said in a recent interview. “It’s not a colour issue. Speaking to the Press Association at the start of the tour in Turin, guitarist the Edge said it would be a “huge disappointment” if U2 were unable to play Ireland and that “every effort” is going into making Irish shows a reality. The Irish Times reports that the tour was scheduled to end in Paris on November 15th but the band has now has extended their European run to accommodate the long-awaited Irish shows.

Yeah.” Horowitz has since apologised to Elba, writing: “Clumsily, I chose the word ‘street’ as Elba’s gritty portrayal of DCI John Luther was in my mind, but I admit it was a poor choice of word. Speculation is focussing on three Dublin dates in late November. “I am so happy we are bringing this home,” Bono said. “These Irish shows will be like an Irish wedding.

I am mortified to have caused offence.” Elba has now shared his thoughts on Horowitz’s comments on Instagram, posting a screenshot of one of the many “too street” headlines with the caption: “Always Keep Smiling!! It is always tricky planning a wedding – who sits besides who could ruin it!” At a press conference to launch the Turin shows last week, The Edge spoke about U2’s relationship with their Irish fans. “It’s a home crowd and they know us better than anyone else.
