Full Details of Adele’s “Skyfall” Theme Released; Song Coming Thursday


After weeks of “no comment,” Adele’s record company has finally released the full details of “Skyfall,” her theme song for the upcoming James Bond movie of the same name.

The song, which is now available for pre-order on iTunes globally, will debut on Adeles official site,, on Thursday, October 4 at 7:07 p.m. EST; by that time, it’ll be October 5 in the U.K.  You’ll be able to purchase it right after the premiere.

Not coincidentally, October 5 is the 50th anniversary of the release of the first-ever James Bond film, Dr. No It’s being celebrated as Global James Bond Day.

In a statement, Adele says, “I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall. There’s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song.  But I fell in love with the script…and it ended up being a bit of a no-brainer to do it in the end.”

She adds that it was “a lot of fun” writing a song for a specific project, which she’d never done before, and notes that “one of the proudest moments of my life” was when they recorded the string section for the tune at Abbey Road Studios.

A 77-piece orchestra backs up Adele on the track.  She adds, “I’ll be back combing my hair when I’m 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day, I’m sure!”
