Adele’s Skyfall and Happy Global James Bond Day!

Adele’s intoxicating voice along with the 77 piece orchestra for Skyfall is every sultry second a new classic Bond theme.

Skyfall premiered on Adele’s website this morning at 0:07.

Skyfall was co-written by Adele and and Paul Epworth and was recorded at Abbey Road Studios. Epworth co-wrote and produced Rolling in the Deep. Skyfall displaced Rihanna’s Diamonds from the top of the iTunes chart this morning. The U.K.’s The Telegraph reports, “Previous Bond theme artists have all failed to take their songs to the top of the charts, including Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Tom Jones, and Madonna. Duran Duran made it to number two in 1985 with A View to a Kill.

The single’s release comes exactly 50 years to the day since the world premiere of the first Bond movie, Dr No. And the film company behind the 007 franchise has designated today Global James Bond Day, with a number of activities to mark the anniversary.”

The film, Skyfall 007, starring Daniel Craig as Bond, is premiering on October 26.

  1. Now that is James Bond song! Too bad Sean Connery is too old to still be Bond :(

    I agree Sean Connery is just the best James Bond ever…

      I completely agree Andrea and foreverglamgirl–Sean Connery is by far the best, although Daniel Craig is not bad. Perhaps Joey will do a GMG best ever James Bond poll. I’d love to know what others think.
