Hear Sam Smith's Breathtaking 'James Bond' Theme "Writing's On The Wall"
Just a few days ago, UK soul phenom Sam Smith teased his contribution to the 50-year-long lineage of James Bond themes, “Writing’s On The Wall.” And today, as promised, the song is here and alive in the world. Sticking to the strict orchestral ballad framework that’s dominated Bond themes for damn near the film series’ entire existence, Smith’s croon bodes well, stretching out over a lush arrangement, helmed by longtime collaborators Jimmy Napes and Disclosure, which certainly marks a drastic departure from their own “for dance-floors only” calling card and proving without question what the Grammy-winning team is capable of. The forthcoming Bond film Spectre marks the series’ 24th installment, starring Daniel Craig and Christoph Waltz, and will be hitting theaters this fall on November 6th. Hear Sam Smith’s absolutely breathtaking Bond theme “Writing’s On The Wall” below and purchase the single on iTunes today, well ahead of the film’s release.
