Total Film has reported that Adele is to be singing the theme song to the next James Bond film, Skyfall.  Following in the footsteps of other great singers, such as Shirley Bassey, Carly Simon and Tina Turner, Adele will be putting her power vocals on display once again when the film hits the silver screen next month.

Although gossip website’s cogs are whirring at the moment with speculation of the title of the track and even leaks of some of the lyrics, we already know that the name of the single will be Skyfall, as per the previous trend, no?  I’m not sure ‘The Sky is Falling’ is the official release name that some of these gossip websites are claiming, but I think it’s best that we all wait and see – let’s not ruin the surprise.

The single will be the first release by Adele since she revealed she was pregnant and since her much loved 21 album, which topped many a chart back in 2011.

Her soulful voice will definitely do the classic James Bond theme justice.

Co-starring Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw, Skyfall will open in the UK on 26 October 2012.
