“ Adele 007
Adele is the new Bond Girl! - at least music-wise. Although the song will only officially be released on Oct 4 (you can pre-order it now), this Twitter post from Adele (below) confirms that the 6-times GRAMMY winner will be the voice of the new 007 soundtrack. A preview also ‘leaked’ stirring up the buzz ahead of tomorrow’s launch.
Skyfall, the 23rd edition of the James Bond franchise, was directed by Sam Mendes and will see Daniel Craig reprise his 007 role for the 3rd time. The sky nearly fell upon 007, when MGM encountered financial troubles and production was suspended until filming finally resumed in November 2011.
“Skyfall” is out in cinemas October 23 (US) / October 26 (UK).
