Adele ‘Skyfall': Listen to Snippet of Bond Theme
Adele just announced that she’s a “Bond Girl” and that she would be premiering ‘Skyfall,’ the theme song she recorded for the upcoming 007/James Bond film of the same name, and already, a minute-and-a-half snippet of the song has leaked online. So what’s the verdict?
We love it and we’ve only been treated to a mere 90 seconds of melody and bluesy vocals.
It’s mysterious, romantic and torchy, with Adele’s voice serving as the emotion-packed focal point over a lilting piano melody. There’s a rolling build up to the tension, but for the most part, it sounds like a sultry showpiece for Adele’s famous pipes.
It’s also got the same vibe as classic Bond themes, making it the perfect accompaniment for 007’s spy missions, covert shenanigans and romantic exploits with heaps of women.
The chorus “Let the sky fall / When it crumbles / We will stand tall / Face it all together” offers a message of strength, as well.
The full song is set to premiere on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 7:07PM ET at this location. Be sure and tune in to hear the song in its entirety, as Adele meant us to hear it.
What say you, Adele and Bond fans? What do you think of ‘Skyfall’ in this truncated form?
