Adele’s Theme for Skyfall Arrives

Adele - Skyfall

Written by Adele and Paul Epworth, the title song to the latest James Bond film Skyfall has been released via the official Adele website. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, “Skyfall” (the song) features a 77-piece orchestral accompaniment.

It’s a classic James Bond theme, neither striving for the stars nor rocking the boat. Given that Skyfall, due out in Australia on 22 November 2012, is the 50th anniversary film for the series, it was a safe bet that it would be safe. Indeed, the theme was released at 0:07BST (London time) in celebration of World Bond Day, which marks the film franchise’s 50th anniversary.

Daniel Craig is back as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.  In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her.  As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
