Radiohead singer Thom Yorke wrote on Twitter: "Last year we were asked to write a theme tune for the Bond movie Spectre. Yes we were"

"... It didn't work out ... but became something of our own which we love very much ...."

".. As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it. Merry Christmas. May the force be with you ..."

The final SPECTRE theme song was eventually performed by Sam Smith and is called Writing's on the Wall. This was the first Bond theme song to reach the number 1 position in the UK charts, but it also got some negative reactions from fans.
