Singer Sam Smith confirmed that the honorary title track or theme song of the upcoming James Bond film Spectre has been recorded by him. Spectre will be released in the UK on October 26 and in the US on November 6. The song, released by Capitol Records, will debut and be available to purchase and stream on September 25.
Multi-platinum selling artist Sam Smith has co-written the title song, “Writing’s On The Wall,” with fellow GRAMMY Award winner Jimmy Napes. It is the first James Bond theme song recorded by a British male solo artist since 1965.
Smith said, “This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honoured to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song. I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of some of my biggest musical inspirations. I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it.”
