VIDEO: New James Bond Theme Released


Published at 9:58am 25th September 2015. (Updated at 10:02am 25th September 2015)

It is the song all James Bond fans have been 'live or let dying' to hear...

Sam Smith's theme for Spectre.

'Writing's On The Wall' was released on Friday.

The track will be the opening song on the credits for what is reportedly Daniel Craig's last outing as 007.

It was co-written with Disclosure and Jimmy Napes; the man behind Sam Smith's hit song, Stay With Me.

Sam said the theme was in the can pretty fast: "Written in 20 minutes, the quickest song I've ever done and the vocal on the record is the actual vocal that's on the demo so yeah, it's crazy."

But Sam added he is nervous about living up to the legendary reputation of previous Bond themes: "Nancy Sinatra, Louis Armstrong; it's unbelieveable. I spent a lot of time just looking at the Wikipedia page and freaking out about the whole thing - it's amazing!

"I just hope the song does it justice - that's what's important to me."
