Is Adele Recording the New James Bond Song?
The singer is rumored to be in L.A. working on the theme for Spectre
Does Adele have a new mission to sing for James Bond again?
The British songstress, 26, who won an Oscar for her theme song for the franchise’s last installment, Skyfall, is rumored to be working on Spectre.
According to The Daily Mirror, she was flown to Los Angeles to record potential new music for the film.
Daniel Craig, who has begun filming in Europe, has lauded the singer’s talent.
“I cried,” Craig said about Adele’s work on Skyfall. “From the opening bars I knew immediately, then the voice kicked in, and it was exactly what I’d wanted from the beginning.
“It just got better and better because it [fit] the movie,” he added. “In fact, the more of the movie we made, the more it [fit] it.”
A source at MGM told the paper that “execs made their feelings known to Adele that they want her back for the next film. They ll still have to decide whether they want the tune once it s recorded.”
While it is rare for a singer to be on more than one soundtrack, if she were to nab a follow-up to Skyfall, Adele would be in great company: Shirley Bassey sung the themes for Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker.
A rep for the singer had no comment and the studio did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
