It’s here! Adele finally confirmed (after months of rumors) that she’s singing the theme to the new James Bond film, “Skyfall.” Now the entire song has leaked online, and, to no one’s surprise, it’s awesome.
“Skyfall” immediately brings to mind the more classic Bond themes of yore, which makes sense considering Adele’s trademark vintage sound. The tune starts with a dramatic horn flash before a haunting piano comes in and Adele starts singing.
“This is the end, hold your breath and count to ten/Feel the earth move and then hear my heart burst again,” she sings before getting to the chorus. “Let the sky fall/when it crumbles/we will stand tall/face it all together.”
The reported album cover art also invokes a classic Bond image, with Adele peering out from the barrel of the gun Bond (Daniel Craig) is staring down.
What do you think of the song? Are you excited for the new Bond movie?
