Sam Smith confirmed for Bond theme.

Our rivals linked Ellie Goulding, Lana Del Rey and Radiohead to the theme but we told you a year ago that Sam was in discussions with movie bosses at MGM to record it. “I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line-up of some of my biggest musical inspirations. MANILA, Philippines – Sony Pictures Entertainment today confirmed that Sam Smith has recorded “Writing’s On The Wall,” the theme song to Spectre, the 24th James Bond adventure. I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it.” Spectre producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said of the announcement: “Sam and Jimmy have written the most inspirational song for Spectre and with Sam’s extraordinary vocal performance, ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ will surely be considered one of the greatest Bond songs of all time.” “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.” A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful widow of an infamous criminal. Back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes).

Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of Spectre. The previous Bond theme song, “Skyfall,” was performed by Adele, and was honored with the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, the Brit Award for British Single of the Year, and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media. Smith’s debut album In The Lonely Hour launched at No. 1 in the UK and bowed in at No. 2 in the US, and has since earned five No.1 UK singles, four Grammy Awards, three Brit Awards, six MOBO Awards, Q and AMA Awards.
