Adele to Sing the Skyfall Bond Theme

It’s looking increasingly like Adele has been selected to record the Bond theme for the upcoming 23rd film, Skyfall, after it was revealed that she’s been visiting the studio where the soundtrack is being recorded.

According to The Sun, the Grammy-winning singer visited the legendary Abbey Road studios earlier this month to record with Thomas Newman; the man given the hefty responsibility for the Bond soundtrack by director Sam Mendes.

Adele hinted on the Jonathan Ross show late last year that she’d been asked to record the song, and apparently began preliminary sessions with producer Paul Epworth shortly after.

The 23rd Bond film, Skyfall, will see an operation in Istanbul go awry, leaving James Bond missing and presumed dead. Daniel Craig returns to play the titular character, while it recently became clear that he has signed on for at least another two movies.

With Skyfall due to release in the UK on October 26 and in the US shortly after, it hopefully won’t be too long before we hear what’s essentially the first new music from Adele since her obscenely successful album, 21.

To see Adele slip up on Jonathan Ross by admitting she’s been asked to record a theme, skip to the six-minute mark below.

Luke Karmali is IGN’s UK Editorial Assistant, and would make an awful James Bond. You too can revel in mediocrity by following him on IGN and on Twitter.
