Audio: The Bullitts - "Skyfall" [James Bond Theme]

The Bullitts - "Skyfall" (single art)

Barely had time to get flat from the last fusillade The Bullitts let off–when they went ahead and dropped the j-bomb on us. That’s James Bomb, case you didn’t read the headline. Yes, it appears that our own okay-homie Jeymes Samuel has written the official song of the new Bond flick Skyfall (looks pretty tough, watch the trailer below–and then note the difference The Bullitts makes), speculation about Adele‘s involvement notwithstanding. In (appropriately) mysterious fashion, Team Bullitts shot this over for us to decode with little in the way of metadata so I’m not a thousand percent whether this is a demo, an guide-vocal to be sung by somebody else or the official official opening credits music. But considering the results and The Bullitts unique marriage of musical and cinematic swag, I can’t really think of anybody more appropriate to score what is traditionally the most epic opening credits sequence in film history. If this is not already signed on the dotted line, Albert R. Broccoli or whoever runs Bond business these days, please lock it in. Listen below (lyrics at bottom after the two trailers) and pass the damn popcorn!

SKYFALL (lyrics)

Don’t let the SKYFALL
Over my night fall
Just like the tide calls
To my fatal love
When you make the SKYFALL
The shadows of light fall
Danger in sight draws
For my fatal love

You whisper his name
Then walk in the flame
Your burning
It’s never the same
When murder’s the game
You’re learning
Make me a diamond flower
From a seed Love,
Take from me exactly what you need
I bleed love…

Don’t let the SKYFALL
Over my night fall
Just like the tide calls
To my fatal love
When you make the SKYFALL
The shadows of light fall
Danger in sight draws
For my fatal love

Maybe the stars in your eyes have a world of meaning…
Maybe they come with a pathway
To Mars and beyond
Maybe a part of me dies –
When you leave me
Maybe it’s a sign that something’s wrong
So long…

Don’t let the SKYFALL
Over my night fall
Just like the tide calls
To my fatal love
When you make the SKYFALL
The shadows of light fall
Danger in sight draws
For my fatal love

Like the wind is to the tree
Like the blue is to the sea
My love
Hold ever still, I’m ready
Place my heart upon your blade
With you I’ll give my final breath to be

Don’t let the SKYFALL
Over my night fall
Just like the tide calls
To my fatal love
When you make the SKYFALL
The shadows of light fall
Danger in sight draws
For my fatal love
