Adele's Skyfall theme song is finally out there for all. The track is called Skyfall itself and fits perfectly to the theme of the film.

Skyfall has a brassy and soulful tune alongside the work of Shirley Bassey in the oeuvre of James Bond title tracks, reports Huffington Post.

This is Adele's first song after her hit album 21. The lyrics goes like this:

This is the end / Hold your breath and count to 10
Feel the earth move and then / Hear my heart burst again

The theme song was recorded with a 77 piece orchestra at London studios.

"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", Adele told Huffington Post.

The James Bond theme song Adele has recorded for the new 007 movie Skyfall had been leaked online.

The official song, also called Skyfall, was scheduled to premiere on the singer's website on October 5, which has been declared Global James Bond Day.
