Sam Smith confirms today that he will be behind the title song for the new James Bond movie 'Spectre', which premieres this fall.
When the new James Bond film Spectre premieres in the end of October, it will be to the tune of Sam Smith's new track 'Writing's on the Wall', written for the occasion.
The British singer Sam Smith, behind hits like 'Stay With Me' and 'Not the Only One', thus writes himself into a long line of artists who have contributed to soundtracks of the iconic films.
- This is one of the highlights of my career. I am proud to finally announce that I will sing the title song for the new Bond film. I hope you enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it, wrote Sam Smith on his Instagram profile this morning after rumors have been buzzing on social media for some time.
To BBC Radio 2, Sam Smith said that it took him only 20 minutes to write the song, and that the young singer has never written a song so quickly.
The prestigious task has previously been performed by artists such as Adele, Paul McCartney's band Wings and Madonna, but Sam Smith is the first male solo artist from Britain to sing a Bond theme song since Bond movies came in 1965.
The number 'Writing's on the Wall' is to be released on September 25.
