Earlier this September it was officially announced that Sam Smith would perform the latest Bond theme song. 23-year old Sam Smith posted a teaser image the day before the announcement on his Twitter page yesterday, showing the SPECTRE ring, confirming the old rumours that he would be the vocalist for the song.

The track was recorded in January 2015. It’s the first James Bond theme song recorded by a British male solo artist since 1965, when Tom Jones performed the title song for Thunderball. Sam Smith cites Adele (the singer of SkyFall) and Amy Winehouse (once rumoured to sing the Quantum of Solace theme song) as his main influences.

Smith said: “This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honoured to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song. I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations. I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it.”

Listen on Apple Music or Spotify or buy it on iTunes.
