Adele will premiere her new song ‘Skyfall’ for the upcoming James Bond motion picture of the same name this Friday at 6:07pm central time, via her website adele.tv and will be made for download immediately thereafter. Friday also marks the 50th anniversary of the release of the first James Bond film ‘Dr. No’ and will be celebrated by making the day Global James Bond Day.
Adele enlisted the help of Paul Epworth to co-write and produce the track after she read the script. Recorded in Abby Road Studios with a 77 piece orchestra. She says ” â€œI 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. But I fell in love with the script and Paul 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. Iâ€™ll be back combing my hair when I’m 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I’m sure!â€
The movie will be released October 26 in the UK and November 9 in the U.S.
