Adele’s opening theme song for the much anticipated James Bond feature “Skyfall” is set to go online Thursday night U.S. time, but a good chunk of it – 90-seconds in fact – has snuck online and can be listened to right now below (before Sony takes it down of course).
My take as a lifelong Bond nut? After Jack White & Alicia Keys’ “Another Way to Die” sounded like two horny cats screeching at each other, this is a very welcome change in tone.
Skipping the brassy bombast of most of the Bond themes of the past 25 years, this is much more a moody and bluesy piece along “Moonraker” and “Diamonds Are Forever” lines. Classy, classic Bond.
