Adele Records 'Spectre' Theme? 'Skyfall' Singer 'Set For Second James Bond Song'

Adele looks set to make film history, by becoming the first artist to sing the theme song for two consecutive ‘James Bond’ films.


The multi-award-winning singer/songwriter has reportedly landed the job of performing the theme tune for ‘Spectre’, which hits cinemas later this year, pipping other rumoured candidates like Lana Del Rey and Sam Smith to the post.

According to the Daily Star, Adele has already recorded the film’s theme song, laying down vocals in Los Angeles earlier this year.


A source told the newspaper: "Adele was just one of a few artists asked to write and record the title track for Spectre.

"It is huge pressure for her after the unbelievable success of Skyfall. To anyone else it would be a poisoned chalice but if anyone can pull it off it is Adele."

Adele previously recorded the title song for 007’s latest outing, ‘Skyfall’, which earned her an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a Grammy, to add to her ever-expanding collection of awards.

Since then, however, she’s taken notably absent from the music scene, while she works on the follow-up to 2011’s smash hit album, ‘21’.

She’s been taking her time with her third release, which it’s been claimed features a number of collaborators, including Ryan Tedder, Diane Warren and Paul Epworth, as well as Prince, who has rumoured to have been working with Adele last year.

In keeping with her first two releases, ‘19’ and ‘21’, it has been widely rumoured the impending album will be called ‘25’, the age she was when she wrote most of it, particularly after a comment she posted on her 26th birthday, writing: “Bye bye 25… see you again later in the year.”
