Adele makes a memorable return to the music scene by singing the theme song for the latest James Bond film, "Skyfall."
After she revealed on her Twitter account that she will be singing the theme song for the Bond film, Adele releases the official theme song on her website at 7 a.m. UK time. The 24-year-old singer sought the help of Paul Epworth to pen down the song.
Adele turned out to be the queen of the 2012 Grammys on Sunday night. The British songstress rocked the awards show with her rousing rendition of "Rolling in the Deep" after getting throat surgery last fall, receiving a heartfelt standing ovation from the crowd.
She said on her interview that she felt pressured on being given the chance to write and sing the James Bond theme song. But as soon as she read the script and fell in love with it, lyrics started to flow effortlessly. Adele added that her co-writer for the song Paul Epworth, also had great ideas for the song.
From the short time span of its release, Adele's Twitter fans have already posted their praises. The positive feedbacks would put the brilliant singer at ease after she said she wasn't sure about doing the theme song at first.
"The theme song for the new 007 that Adele did is perfect," one Twitter user posted.
"Wow. Adele's Skyfall is blummin' good. A proper Bond song. #007 #skyfall" another fan praised.
The "Skyfall" theme song had somewhat of a relaxed feel and a signature Bond song vibe. The song was made perfect with Adele's voice which was accompanied by a 77-piece orchestra.
The film which stars Daniel Craig once again will have a London premier on October 22 and will have its official premier on October 26. "Skyfall" will be available for showing in Australia on November 22.
Adele joins a list of stellar artist who have performed James Bond theme songs. Chris Cornell provided the theme song for Daniels Craig's very first Bond film which was "Casino Royale" while Alicia Keys sand the 007 theme song for "Quantum of Solace."
