Adele - Skyfall

Adele's theme for upcoming Bond film 'Skyfall' has emerged online - check it out below.

Adele was virtually tailor-made to tackle the Bond theme. A belting, soulful singer the Tottenham born artist has been linked to the franchise almost since the first moment she hit the public gaze. Confirming her involvement earlier this year, Adele has stepped in to record the theme for 'Skyfall'.

Set to be released later this year, the film marks the 23rd instalment of the franchise and will feature Daniel Craig in the title role.

"I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall," Adele said in a recent statement. "There's a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song. But I fell in love with the script and Paul had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no brainer to do it in the end."

Finishing, the record breaking singer added: "It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I've never done, which made it exciting. When we recorded the strings it was one of the proudest moments of my life. I’ll be backcombing my hair when I'm 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I'm sure!"

'Skyfall' is set to be released on October 26th.
