It would seem reports that Sam Smith was being tipped to record the theme tune for the next ‘James Bond’ theme were nothing more than rumours, after he’s admitted he’s not been approached for the job.

The Grammy award-winning singer had been widely tipped to be performing the title track to ‘Spectre’, when it hits cinemas later this year, following in the footsteps of Paul McCartney, Madonna and Tina Turner, who have all performed ‘Bond’ themes in the past.
However, during an interview on the Capital London Breakfast Show on Friday, the ‘Stay With me’ singer ruled himself out as a potential candidate for the job, admitting that although he’d “love” to record a ‘Bond’ theme, he hasn’t been asked this time around.
He explained: “I actually have no idea. People seem to think I'm doing it but I have absolutely no idea what's going on.
“I'm being deadly serious. I really think I would know by now!”
Sam also confessed he’d heard rumours that it was actually Ellie Goulding who would be performing the theme tune to ‘Spectre’, adding her name to the ever-growing list of potential musical stars for the job.
He added: “I heard Ellie Goulding was going to do it, I heard loads of different things. It's definitely not me.”
It was recently suggested that Adele was about to go for the ‘Bond’ double, and that she would be following her Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe-winning song ‘Skyfall’ with the title song to the new 007 outing.
