Sam Mendes has announced that the recording of the upcoming Bond film’s accompanying song has been completed.
However, the director – who has returned to direct Spectre following the success of its predecessor Skyfall – did not announce who will be singing it. ‘Skyfall’, sung by Adele, reached number 2 in the UK chart and became the first Bond theme to win at the Golden Globes, Brit and Academy awards.
As reported by the BBC, Mendes confessed; “I can say that the song’s been recorded and it’s fantastic and I’m very excited about it. You won’t have to wait long.”
Bookies’ favourites include Caro Emerald, Sam Smith, Lana Del Rey and 2014 Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst. However, Ellie Goulding has previously prompted speculation, tweeting the title of Paul McCartney’s 1973 Bond theme, ‘Live and Let Die’.
Spectre is set to hit UK cinemas on 26th October. Remind yourself of Adele’s mega hit, ‘Skyfall’, below.
