So remember when the video for Adele‘s Rolling In The Deep first came out, and MK said that she should totally record the next James Bond theme? Well, guess what? She’s recording the next Bond theme! Hell, I’m just glad they didn’t try to use Chris Cornell again, because … yuck. Contact Music reports:
The Someone Like You singer is preparing to go into the studio to record the track, which she wrote during a recent week off touring, and will then submit it for the next spy adventure which is currently being filmed. A source told The Sun newspaper: “Adele is the obvious choice to record the next Bond theme. The last few songs for the spy movies have hardly set the charts alight. After her success this year filmmakers know the song is almost guaranteed to be a huge hit.”
Adele is going into the studio with producer Paul Epworth, who has previously worked with Plan B, Florence and the Machine and Cee Lo Green. Several music legends have previously recorded Bond themes including Sir Paul McCartney, Dame Shirley Bassey, Duran Duran, Madonna, Tom Jones and more recently Chris Cornell and a duet by Jack White and Alicia Keys. In many cases the tracks are based around the film’s title, but the latest Bond project is still only publicly known as Bond 23.
Okay, let’s review: Adele? Check. James Bond? Check. Being produced by the guy behind Florence + The Machine and Cee Lo? Check. Honestly, is there anyway this won’t be absolutely amazing, win a bunch of awards and make everyone a ton of money? Hell, Adele could record the song in Latvian and it would still outsell everyone else, and I’ve never even heard anyone speak Latvian. Or have I? I’m not really sure, I don’t know what Latvian really is.
