Sam Smith, 23-year-old, singer has recorded the theme song for the upcoming James Bond movie “Spectre.”
The track is called “Writing’s on the Wall” and it will be released on Friday, 25 September.
According to Smith said, “This is one of the highlights of my career.”
“I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations.”
Smith also said he recorded the track in January.
“I got called into the office with Barbara Broccoli and Sam Mendes and they gave me the script, I read the script… they said ‘have a go at the song’.
“It’s the quickest I’ve ever written a song – it took 20 minutes… and they loved it!”
“I love the song so much,” he added.
Smith co-wrote “Writing’s on the Wall” title song with fellow Grammy award winner, Jimmy Napes, who worked with him on the number one hits “Stay With Me” and “La La La.”
Spectre will be the 24th James Bond film produced by Eon Productions. It will feature Daniel Craig in his fourth performance as James Bond.
