Why is it trending?
Singer Adele has released her new single, the theme tune to the next James Bond film, Skyfall.
Originally a series of books by British author Ian Fleming, the James Bond franchise is more than 50 years old with the first movie starring Sean Connery ‘Dr No’ being released in 1962. It has been the tradition that a famous contemporary artist performs the theme tune, perhaps the most famous of these being Shirley Bassey who has provided vocals for three movies. Adele is the latest in this long tradition, performing the title track to the next James Bond release, Skyfall.
Adele is a British singer and songwriter, who was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after they came across her demo on MySpace. Adele has released two albums, her debut 19 and the follow up 21 which has both been commercial successes gaining multiple platinum ranking in the UK and also selling well overseas. During her 2011 tour, Adele suffered a vocal cord haemmorage and had to undergo mico surgery. Despite rumors that Adele would be taking a long break from the music industry, Adele announced this month that she was working in the Skyfall theme, describing it as ‘One of the proudest moments of my life.”
