Adele’s ‘Skyfall’: Hear a Preview of the Singer’s James Bond Theme (AUDIO)
A 90-second preview of Skyfall, the much-anticipated James Bond theme performed by Adele, hit the Internet early Tuesday morning, teasing a tune that harkens back to the good old days of Shirley Bassey and Nancy Sinatra.
The jazzy tune, which was co-written by Adele and Paul Epworth, is every bit as good as you’d expect from the Rolling in the Deep collaborators, and offers modern-day audiences one of the first legitimate Bond themes in decades. (Sorry, Madonna.)
“Let the sky fall / And it crumbles,” the 24-year-old pregnant crooner sings. “We will stand tall / And face it together.”
Will it all hold together in full? Fans will find out when the track is officially released on Thursday.
