Adele’s theme song for the new James Bond film, ‘Skyfall,’ is said to be a classic that takes after the iconic spy movies older hits.
The 24-year-old pop-singer has written the track with the help of a collaborator (probably Paul Epworth), the Herald Sun reported.
Roger Friedman, editor in chief of Showbiz, the track is an ominous, dramatic ballad, with lots of gorgeous horn flourishes peeking out through Adele’s now trademark vocals.
Adele is also the first female artist to have three singles in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time, and the first female artist to have two albums in the top five of the Billboard 200 and two singles in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously.
Part of the chorus of the sound track is “Let the sky fall/Let it crumble/We will stand tall/And face it all/together.”
The introductory lines, which follow a piano solo, are, “This is the end/Hold your breath and count to ten/Feel the Earth move and then/Hear my heart burst again.”
