Listen to Sam Smith’s theme song for ‘Spectre,’ ‘Writing’s on the Wall’


Is this the next catchy James Bond tune?

Time will tell, but the new theme song for the latest James Bond movie, Spectre, was released on Friday and is sung by Sam Smith, who was announced as the singer of the tune a few weeks back. Smith follows Adele, who sung the award-winning theme for Skyfall.

The song was composed with the help of composer Thomas Newman and definitely has a Skyfall feel to it with a sense of classical qualities added to the lyrics by Smith. I guess it depends on if you are a fan of his work or not because the first listening didn’t sit with me. But, I’m sure this is a song we will be hearing a lot until the movie’s release on November 6 so maybe it will grow on me.

Spectre is directed by Sam Mendes and stars Daniel Craig as James Bond alongside Christopher Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Ben Whishaw, Monica Bellucci, Naomie Harris, Andrew Scott, and Rory Kinnear.

It opens in theaters on November 6.
